People across the globe catch their first glimpses of distant lifestyles through images in film, newspaper, and television, hear unfamiliar musical genres and languages through radio broadcasts and music videos, and interact with people continents away by logging on the Internet. It is no longer news to anyone that mass media pervade our world. Yet this pervasiveness lulls people into accepting without thought the roles media technologies (photography, radio, television, film, audiocassettes, newspapers, the Internet, etc.) serve in our society and extending those to other societies. In this seminar, we will question common assumptions about media by considering and analyzing the ways in which media technologies and cultural processes are interlinked.
