New Media landscapes, New Technologies, New Roles - Public and Private in the Network

when 23 July 2011 - 13 August 2011
duration 3 weeks
credits 9.9 ECTS

The course aims to introduce and discuss some of the ways in which new technologies and practices are transforming the spheres and processes of both media institutions and citizens. Established notions of institutional professionalism, e.g. journalism (and its correlations with a national arena), work and leisure, entertainment and consumption are increasingly being called into question in a more and more heterogeneous, interactive and trans-national media landscape. A consistent focus will be on how established media institutions and processes are both forming and being formed by emergent practices. Discussions will evolve around the key concepts of media systems, public spheres, globalization, citizenship, social media and community. Course offered by Department of Media studies, AU.
