ANS 372 • Global Media Cultures-W
3:30 PM-5:00 PM
In this course we will critically examine the political, economic, cultural and technological discourses of globalization in terms of the multiple forces which produce, sustain and disrupt global, national and local media. We will address questions of identity, community, locality and mobility in specific cultural contexts, and pay particular attention to the role of electronic media in globalization. The goal of the seminar is to ensure that by the end of the semester, all participants will be able to map key issues, concepts, theories and methodologies for future research in this area of inquiry.
