Fall 2024
Taught By: Brittnay Proctor-Habil
Section: A

CRN: 15872

Credits: 3

This course explores the various methodologies used in media studies at the nexus of sound studies and visual culture. The course is taught from a black feminist episteme, meaning, we will center the work and scholarship coming out of black feminism (in its many variations and pluralities). During the duration of the course, we will address the context, historicity, and politics surrounding media studies, sound studies, and visual culture, as well as, the antagonisms and tensions that have emerged in black feminist approaches to these fields of inquiry. We will survey an array of methods and approaches used in black feminist approaches to media studies, sound studies, visual culture, which include, but are not limited to: black feminist theory; black Marxist critiques of capital, black performance theory, listening, discourse analysis; "viewing/looking;" the process of description, sound art, the use of sound in black literature, archival research, ethnography, etc. The seminar will be organized around guided discussions, lectures, seminar papers, selected readings, and intermittent praxis exercises.

Media Studies courses are open to all graduate students. Undergraduate Juniors and Seniors, with permission from the instructor, and BA/MA Media studies students should email mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu for access.
