Foundational approaches to media as a means of defining and distributing social power in everyday life.
As part of a significant curriculum revision, Film and Media Studies has redesigned a formerly required theory course (FAMS 473) to equip students with foundational models of media and power. In pursuit of that objective, this course aims to meet students at their level and provide a platfrom on which they can build in the major. We also hope that nonmajors will take an interest in the course. An understanding of how media reinforce and alter distributions of power in everyday should be basic equipment for every citizen.
The Department of Philosophy approves this proposed deletion of the course (PHIL 473).
