|Læringsmål:||After the course the student should be able to:
• Identify and present central matters of concern within the field of new media and communication
• Critically assess how communication is mediated through and with digital technology
• Reflect on challenges and opportunities of new media and their social implications in a global context
|Fagligt indhold:||Networked media services such as Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Grindr have profoundly changed the ways in which people and organizations communicate and interact. Changes occur on the material level, with networked media technologies spreading quickly but unevenly across nations and the Globe. On a political level, active citizenship is increasingly intertwined with digital literacy and mediated forms of action. And socially, notions of private and public are reshaped as social networking sites become primary sites for the performance of identity and organisation of community.
In this class, we will examine the effects of networked media and communication on such different areas of society. To learn how to make sense of this, we will read media and communication theories, and in order to think about what kinds of knowledge each theory produces, and apply them to case material.
The course is an introduction to networked media communication and consists of 14 weeks of lectures, exercises, presentations, and supervision.
The lectures will focus theoretically on reading and discussing various approaches.
During the exercises you will work in groups on the themes brought up in the lecture. Here you will both train your analytical skills, ability to collaborate, give oral presentations, and give constructive feedback.
