Media Literacy Syllabus

Summer 2010 Media Lit Syllabus

This syllabus is for an 8-week intensive summer course in media literacy.  I emphasize a “media citizenship” approach to media literacy, meaning that we cover textual/semiotic analysis and issues of representation, but there’s also a lot of focus on media policy and discussions about how to create a media system that promotes cultural and political democracy by conveying a wide range of ideas, visions, dreams, ways of living, etc.  This is not a final draft.
