Introduction to Media Studies

Spring 2019

Taught By: Usman Shaukat

Section: A

CRN: 1205

Credits: 3

Students explore media history and the basic concepts employed in media analysis, spanning the history of technologies from the magic lantern to multimedia and stressing the relationship between media and their social, political, and economic contexts. Since media are at once technology, art, entertainment, and business enterprises, they need to be studied from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The readings for this course reflect this multifaceted approach and draw attention to the work of key thinkers and theorists in the field. Examples are drawn primarily from the visual media of commercial film, television, advertising, video, and the Internet, although alternative media practices are also noted. Students gain an understanding of how media texts are constructed, how they convey meaning, and how they shape one another in significant ways.
