POLI 234 - Media and Politics

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
Much of our exposure to politics and government comes from mediated sources. This course is designed to help students examine and understand the role media play in politics. Central topics include 1) historical and current conceptualizations of “media”; 2) the relationship between media, and electoral politics, citizens’ political knowledge, and policy-making; 3) the limitations and advantages of media sources and journalists; 4) the politics of race, class and gender in media. In addition to scholarly texts, we consult and analyze various forms of mass media, including print media, broadcast media, movies, and the internet. Taneisha Means.

Two 75-minute periods.
