154.314 Independent Media in the Information Age (15 credits)

This course critically evaluates the rise of independent media in the context of the information age, where ‘communication’ is increasingly central to the exercise of social and political power. The course sets a theoretical context for understanding contemporary ‘mainstream’ and ‘independent’ media, then explores a range of independent media forms and practices that seek to generate alternative points of view.
