Our CRA for this week is on Stephen Petersen’s essay “The Ethics of Robot Servitude” (2007). I have published CRA signup posts; please sign up for your task today.
Last week I also asked you to watch Wall-E and to read the concluding chapter of Katherine Hayles book on posthumanism.
Today in class we will discuss:
- CRA performance — great job everyone; be sure to read replies in the channel where you’re working this week.
- The schedule for short analysis/presentation groups — I’ll meet with the P.K.Dick group this Wednesday on Collaborate during class time and will publish expectations for them before that meeting (look for a group DM).
- What to do with non-CRA reading/watching assignments
- What’s going on in Wall-E
By the end of the day today (Monday, 8/24), I’ll be entering process grades in D2L for signing the syllabus, joining Slack, posting an introduction, and CRA1. Use a reply in the #collaboratemeetings channel to indicate whether you attended class today or watched/listened to the recording after it was posted (should post before 1pm).
