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

How has the experience of globalization been shaped, defined, and complicated by media? This course centers the role of media and media technologies in exploring how collectivities are formed, differences articulated, and encounters negotiated in an (unevenly) interconnected world. Today we tend to associate globalization with digital media, but from the newspaper reports of foreign correspondents to portrayals of cultural identity on soap operas and sitcoms, media have long informed understandings of the world and our varied places in it. Thinking about, through, and with media artifacts across a range of geographic contexts, we examine and interrogate dynamics of global exchange.
