CINE 296 - Contemporary Television and Media: Texts, Technology and Audiences

ENGL 295
401 |Oren, Tasha |W 3:30-6:30pm

This upper-level course focuses on the intersection of storytelling and technology in our global media environment. Through theoretical arguments, analysis, and examples, we will explore recent developments, technological innovations and changing conventions that currently shape media narratives, viewer experience and industry behavior. We will pay special attention to the role of media convergence, considering how “traditional” popular media like television and film increasingly interact with web-media, video games, and mobile technologies. In addition, the course will also offer a practical component on writing with a particular concentration on constructing and organizing a theoretical argument.
