Towards a Critical Understanding of Deepfakes: Developing a Teaching Module and More
For my senior thesis in Science, Technology, and Society at Pomona College, I explored the emerging area of deepfakes from historical and philosophical perspectives. As part of this project, I created a teaching module in four parts that aims (1) to teach students, regardless of technical background, what deepfakes are, and (2) to provide students with analytical and theoretical background that would help them apply a critical lens to deepfakes, videos, photos, and other media.
