COMM 4471 Children and the Media (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

From film to television to mobile apps, this course examines children's media as an economic, cultural, and political entity and explores the relationships among young people and the contemporary media environment. Students will analyze various scholarly approaches and major debates in the study of children and media while also learning the larger historical contexts of those debates. This course offers a critical/cultural approach that examines the ways in which media industries, institutions, technologies and texts intersect to produce particular media practices and considers how such practices relate to the production of cultural norms or social power.
