Course Description: This course provides a comparative investigation of how media is involved in the places where power operates. While studying latest ideas and research methods in the fields of media theory and cultural studies, themes are assigned and research projects are carried out in which new perspectives and methodologies that do not fit within existing frameworks are introduced. Additionally, in order to investigate directions in actual practice, the class deepens investigations into the limitations and possibilities in new forms of media such as the Internet. Some course topics include: theories of media power; cultural capital, habits, and symbolic power; media rituals; media pilgrims; and soft power in globalization.
