Media, Technology and Culture

This course takes a detailed and expansive look at how we might understand what media are and why we worry about them. It explores different theoretical approaches to the relationship between media, technology and society - a subject of both hopes and anxieties, historically, in the present day and in projections of the future.

Three main areas are covered: media understood as technological mediums of communication; media as 'the media', or the complex interactions of media producers, audiences and regulation; and media as embodying 'the new', where you will explore recent debates around the implications and definition of so-called 'new media'.

This Short Course can be taken as a stand-alone course or it may be available as part of a Certificate of Higher Education.
