IDSEMUG 1752 - This Mediated Life: An Introduction to the Study of Mass Media

This interdisciplinary seminar will provide an intensive introduction to the study of mass media. Utilizing wide ranging critical and theoretical methodologies, the course will consider how media alternately reflects and forms our sense of politics, economics, race, gender, sexuality and citizenship. The course will be concerned with questions such as: What function does mass media serve for society? How does a media saturated cultural environment shape our identity? How do mass media forms delineate and naturalize prevailing ideologies and ways of being in the world? Can media provide a means to challenge cultural and political hegemony? Readings will be drawn from Berger’s Media Analysis Techniques and Jenkins et. al’s Spreadable Media, as well as the anthologies The Media Studies Reader and Gender, Race and Class in the Media. The course will also include excerpts from the films The Pervert’s Guide To Ideology, Quiz Show, The Secret, Coffey, 50 Shades of Gray, The Truman Show and Network, television shows The Simpsons, South Park, Watchmen, Sex and The City, Ways of Seeing and The X-Files, as well as a selection of other media forms, including blogs, graphic novels, newspapers, magazines, music videos, television commercials, social media sites and video games.
