There’s no escaping the prevalence and influence media has on societies around the world. We are constantly absorbing messages from emails, television, advertising, and social platforms. Through each, authors have agenda that drive how they write their perspectives, how they deliver their perspectives, and how they reach their target audiences to influence their perspectives. It is a competition for our attention and belief where local contexts and global perspectives influence each other.
In Perspectives on Global Media, students will explore and examine how both local and global media shape the way we all perceive our world. Through case studies and real life examples, students will learn to identify and critically assess the complex factors that affect media awareness and analyzing examples on a local and global scale.
