CI 2350 - Critical Media Literacy and/as Civic Engagement

Description
GEN ED: Integrative Learning Experience (Theme: "Critical Consciousness: Learning for Equity and Justice") This course examines how issues of diversity and difference exist in popular culture through analyses of examples of contemporary popular culture. Based on place-based education, civic engagement, and critical media literacy, by exploring examples of popular culture and media, students will experience a range of media texts created and distributed globally, nationally, and even more importantly, locally. Students will move beyond analysis in this course through producing their own popular culture and/or media artifacts that represent their own lived experiences with media within their own lives and/or communities as the students learn to think critically and creatively. Moreover, in fitting with the Critical Consciousness: Learning for Equity and Justice Theme, this course will focus on students developing a sense of how they fit into our media-saturated world as “academically skilled and engaged citizens” as they learn to “reflect on ethical issues and to make reasoned, intelligent judgments about complex moral problems” presented in media.
