CRN: 5338

Credits: 3

This course is an inquiry into the role of media and culture as an increasingly important aspect in the political life of states and societies both at home and abroad. Using local, national and international insights, the course provides a theoretically grounded examination of media, culture and power in international communication. Specifically, we will discuss U.S, Arab and Indian media environments as case studies. Major themes of study will include popular culture and political processes; cultural sovereignty; modernity; democratization; nationalism; and cultural rights. Theory will be connected to professional practice in terms of providing students with a vocabulary and analysis of the role and impact of cultural industries in contemporary international, social relations and the possibilities therein.

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.
