Hi— Yosem, are you interested in focusing on praxis or theory or history? Acknowledging here that one cannot rigorously separate the three, still—obviously--a course that looks at what has been done in the name of social good (by any party) and also what has actually worked (as evaluated by… ) would differ from a course that downplays the fraught nature of any well-intentioned intervention, technological or not—and that's not even taking into consideration national operations and interests.
And, I am guessing you are not only interested in tech for social good far away (i.e., outside the US) but nearby? And, also, material that would include village planning, architecture, etc.? I refer to the latter—planning and building villages-- b/c it's relatively unglamorous among tech circles but as a field it's exciting; and it also has a history. (I distrust things that hide their history.) I'll ask some friends not subscribed to this list who have relevant experience. And—what level? Undergrad? Grad? Research seminar?
