You don?t say what level your course is at, but here?s a couple of mine and descriptions for the classes.  I?m happy to provide more feedback on how these worked for you or anyone else. 
Good luck!

I'm teaching a new course next quarter entitled Internet & Society and searching for good readings that map the landscape (I have several, but am looking for more/better). If you have a syllabus you would be willing to share, or know of a fantastic (especially underappreciated) article or book relevant to any of the following topics, I would be grateful.


history, growth and structure of the Internet

"digital divide(s)": by class, race, age, communities, occupations and countries

online identities and intimacy

creative mashups and intellectual property

political participation

discourse and polarization 

online cultures and diversity

immersive and virtual reality

Information overload, "reading" and thinking with the Internet

online markets, web services and work


Sincere thanks,
