MJD 250 - Global Communication


In this course we will be mapping-out world communication and the cross-cultural outlines of our so-called “global village.” We will take a macro-look at the rise of international communication systems and the development of this thing we call “global culture.” We will examine a series of case studies which reflect the ways in which media techniques and technologies–computers, satellites, the news, language, digital imaging, fiber optics–impact national and cultural development among different populations around the world. Finally, we will take a critical look at the future–the future of global mass audiences; issues of inter-and-cross cultural media ethics, privacy, global policy, and intersections between science and science fiction.

Prerequisites: Majors and Minors Only; Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors Only.
