FILM 48.06 Media and Migration

The relationship between media and migration is a complex one. Media can, at once, facilitate migrants’ journeys and, at the same time, contribute to public discourse that aims to curtail migration. Our individual understanding of migration, personal relationships to it, and the viewpoints we have formed on immigration rights and policies are indelibly shaped by multiple forms of media, broadly construed: mainstream news media, social media, television and film, data visualization, infographics, and multimodal forms of communication. In this course, we will use the lenses of postcolonial studies and critical ethnic studies to examine the interplay of media and migration to collectively build our capacities as critical consumers of media and nuanced and empathetic thinkers about migration. 

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:INT or SOC

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
