In this course, you will explore broad sociological and anthropological understandings of media and theories of power and knowledge that exist in the public sphere and social life. By introducing you to different ways of theorising media practices, this course prepares you for the analysis of the changing media landscape and new forms of social feeling and popular culture. Topics are likely to include: ideas of memory, time and technology, the social relationship between 'public' and 'private' in the context of hyperpublicity today, changing media devices and the role of social media; digital cultures, film and visual cultures; the relationship between revolutions in media technology and public debate; the role of different media in shaping ideas of citizenship and belonging.
