CULT 860-001: Media, Culture, and Society (Spring 2017)
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.
Specialized interdisciplinary topics in cultural theory and analysis. Notes: These courses are designed for the PhD student. Those students not admitted to a PhD program are required to contact the instructor. Topics vary. May be repeated for credit when topic is different. May be repeated within the term.
