This course takes a multidisciplinary, hands-on approach to exploring the sociotechnical practices and political-economic issues involved in building wireless networks in rural and under-resourced areas. Students will be introduced to a large-scale wireless network under development on the scenic South Mendocino coast, and will have the opportunity to devise a semester-long project in their fields of interest. This course is of particular relevance to students in the following disciplines: computer science, electrical-engineering, business management, anthropology, sociology, political science, public policy, international relations, and education.
