PS 460 Topics: Dictatorship & Democracy

Dr. Shawn Schulenberg

This course will examine the relationship between the armed forces and the societies they are charged to protect, with a focus on the cases of Argentina, Brazil, and Chile. Although we will focus primarily on Argentina, we will also study events in Brazil and Chile so that we can understand how and why we see different regional variations and the consequences of these differences today.

With a focus on cross-border issues, students explore ethical and security issues faced by and brought about by computing professionals, including, privacy, intellectual property, reliability, and liability. Students learn about codes of ethics of computing professional societies and discuss the impacts of widespread use of big data and artificial intelligence.
