This course will explore the interaction between the media and education. As sources of entertainment, art, information, education and multi-billon dollar industries, the media are powerful tools of socialization and sites of knowledge production and distribution that shape our perceptions of the world and our place in it. Drawing from scholars and practitioners in disciplines ranging from education to anthropology, and from communication and media and film studies, this course offers a critical introduction to the mutually constructive relationship of media, education and society. This course positions “education” broadly, as a complex and continual process that extends beyond the boundaries of school to the community and throughout adulthood.
Open to Undergraduate students.
