Description

Despite dramatic changes in the media landscape, we still take the media for granted. Having access to information, communication, and content through media is an increasingly important part of the social landscape. Starting with its historical roots, this class traces the uses and consequences of mediated messages and communication technology. The class emphasizes research that has developed within the social science tradition. In that sense, it complements COMM101, which emphasizes developments from critical and cultural studies. Throughout the term, students will have opportunities to both learn and directly experience social science research on the uses and consequences of today’s and yesterday’s media.
