INTL 112 - Introduction to International Studies: Globalization, Media, and Cultural Identities


This course investigates the effects of the globalization of media and popular culture on the identities and identifications of the world’s peoples. We will interrogate where cultural identity and symbolic communities come from and consider the politics and possibilities of common cultures. Combining theory, and case studies of worldwide media (film, video, digital media, music and more), we will explore numerous paradigms (modernization, cultural imperialism, post-modernism, post-structuralism) as frameworks of understanding. Open to first- and second-year students. Every year. (4 credits) (4 Credits)
