Global Media Cultures

ATCM 3325 — Global Media Cultures surveys the importance of critical media studies for our understanding of the world. Every week, we explore a key issue in global studies through a variety of audiovisual materials, including films, tv shows, music videos, and social media. Class discussions focus on how media content represents local lifestyles for foreign audiences and how the global circulation of media creates a sense of belonging to the world. By the end of the course, students understand how media technologies create images and sounds about the world and critically evaluate how these images and sounds shape our perceptions of what the world is like and how it operates.
