Description

Subject Area: Media, Culture and Technology

This course explores the history and contemporary nature and extent of media power, with particular examination of media industries and institutions. Students will explore media powers in their relationship to changing techno-social contexts. The media's influence within political contexts will be examined, along with the new powers or capabilities made available to general populations via media technologies and events. Various social and theoretical explanations are given for media powers. Students are encouraged to develop a critical perspective on the issues together with an appreciation of the way in which media powers develop and function in society.
