COM 113 - Media, Culture, and Society

Course Description: This course addresses the linkages between media, culture and society as they relate to the discourses of modernity and cultural globalization, aesthetics, consumption and markets. We will attempt to understand from a trans-disciplinary perspective the categories of media, culture and society in the context of representations of women and immigrants in the media, the construction of self in the age of new media, and the impact of media digitization, to name a few themes. We will also critically examine the history of media theory and trace the philosophical debates that have characterized the discipline of media studies and its elaboration of fostering communally oriented dialogue, creation of new cultural forms and the changing face of modernity.
