COMM 356 - Communication Technologies


Credit(s): 3
3 hours lecture, 3 hours contact
The advent of digital communication has ushered changes in virtually every aspect of modern life. The digital age has transformed point-to-point and mass communication, specifically how we form and participate in social networks, how culture is exchanged and consumed, and how media industries operate in the marketplace. This course examines the cultural impact of new digital technologies such as the internet and new telephonic and audiovisual media. We will survey the origins of digital communication and the internet and engage closely with contemporary scholarship on digital technologies, the Internet, the institutions that control these technologies.
