This course examines media in local, national, and global contexts. More specifically, it draws on media theory and on specific ethnographic cases to discern the social force of modern mass-mediated communication within and across contemporary cultures. Topics include the technologization of old media, language and performance; the emergence of mass-mediated "imagined" communities, including new media social networks; and finally, war and media in the United States. No first-year students admitted. This course is crosslisted as FMST 374. (A)
