dc.description.abstractThis thesis explores how identity and technology interact in the context of terrorism and conflict. This relationship is important to understand because technology can be designed to shape identity and drive behavior. This ability to manipulate identity through technological means has ethical implications for technological innovation and design and can lead to emerging threats in homeland security. This thesis uses the position of soldier as a template to develop an understanding of the most basic social functions, which are technologically dependent. Following the analysis, the thesis builds a framework called the sociotechnical ecosystem based on artifact, mobility, communications, information, and network structures. Finally, this thesis proposes a new conceptual model to provide a mechanism for analyzing the influence a technological environment can exert on social identity.en_US
