ANTH 374 - Media, Community, Crisis: Mass-Mediated and Digital Cultures

Examines local, national, and global media platforms and practices as primary forces shaping social collectives and individual subjects. Starting with cross-disciplinary media theories students first learn to conceptualize language, culture, and body as primordial ‘media’ of cognition and community. Then, drawing on anthropological and historical case studies of their technological and commoditized reproduction in the 19th-21st centuries, students identify vast and accelerating forces shaping human communications, communities, and consciousness in the new millennium.
