Description
In this course we will look at how new media -- ranging from television, computers, digital image production, video games, to social media platforms and smart phones -- have begun to supplant the social and cultural prominence of film and other traditional media. We'll look at how these media work: at the history and theory of their development, at the changes they have brought about in a broader media culture, and at their social status and significance (e.g., The place they occupy in culture, the kinds of interactions they make possible). This is a Critical Studies course and counts for Category II towards the Film and Media Studies major and minor.
