Media Tech & Cultural Change

Media Technology and Cultural Change
This course will explore how new media technologies impact society and change cultural practices. The course will consider new media of today and yesterday, including printing, comics, audio and digital media, focusing on the social construction of technology, how media technologies help foster our sense of identity and social reality, and how media technologies can be understood across a range of disciplines. We will use new media as both a topic of analysis and as a mode of expression, with ongoing lab projects exploring course concepts via the creation of digital media. No previous media technology skills required. (FMMC 0101 or FMMC 0104) 3 hrs. lect./disc./2 hrs. lab
