Course Description: This course introduces key theories in the fields of media, communications, and media industry. This course considers the following three issues: how a range of forms of power are related to communication and media; how these forms of power are constructed and shaped through the use of languages, different forms of communication, and the production and representation of media; how these forms of power are concerned with everyday life on individual, local, national and global scales. Specific emphasis is placed on the growing importance of media institutions (e.g., television networks) and digital platforms (e.g., Google, Apple) in the digital and global age. How media institutions and digital platforms have increasingly functioned as centers of symbolic power in the shaping of our personal and public life is explored.
