Digital Dialogues
Fall 2023
Taught By: Fabiola Hanna
Section: A

CRN: 11132

Credits: 3

In response to the growing number of digital dialogue projects that are designed to facilitate conversation between people who would disagree with each other, such as in post-conflict situations, this course will look to various fields including memory work, trauma studies, psychology, political theory, human rights studies and peace studies, to assess the kinds of conversations facilitated in a digitally mediated environment. Can a digital environment facilitate dialogue between people who disagree with each other? Students will explore the aesthetics, ethics, and politics of these kinds of projects, including YouTube Series, art installations, interactive documentaries, oral history projects, etc. Adopting a critical technical practice, students will have the option to either produce a written research project or a creative multimedia piece.

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.
