Civic Communication and Media
CCM 362 Civic Media (1)
Comparative examination of uses of media to foster civic engagement. Through analysis of multimedia texts students consider concepts such as participatory culture, citizen journalism, transmedia activism, and civic, radical and tactical media. Case studies develop understanding of civic media across platforms (oral, print, broadcast, internet), contexts (local to global, past to present), and use (dialogic, contentious, hacktivist).
