This course examines the interplay of media, technology and politics, discussing such topics as the relationship between print and the rise of modern democracy; the impacts of television on contemporary politics, especially election campaigns; and the emerging political influences of the Internet and social media. The course will also analyze the structure of ownership of global media systems and its impact on international communications. (Comparative)
