Media Indus and Orgs - Writ Int

This course offers an in-depth exploration of media industries and organizations, specifically focusing on multinational media conglomerates with consideration of mid-sized and independent producers of media. We will examine everything from organizational structures and functions to why decisions are made and the implications of those decisions on the kinds of media texts that are produced and consumed. By using a critical media industry studies perspective, this course will also consider issues of industry lore and history, national contexts, globalization, political economy, and individual agency. The first ten weeks of the semester will be devoted to these broad topics, while the last five weeks of the semester focus on current media industry trends. Satisfies W and SOSC requirements in LS Core.
