Section Information for Spring 2017
This course examines the role of media (e.g., film, television, computers) in political communication, cultural production, and social organization. We will examine theories of what mediation (broadly construed) is and does, as well as how the logics of specific media inflect the messages they mediate. We will also look to historical analyses of media in an attempt to situate them within the social, cultural, and political contexts from which they emerged and which they continue to inflect thereafter.
