IMG 1073

Springtime at Fordham University, Lincoln Center.

Another semester begins this week at Fordham University, Lincoln Center and with it, I’m making available the syllabi for the two classes I’m teaching there this semester.

Introduction to Media Industries

This course is an overview of the mass media communication industries, including print, electronic, and digital media. We will examine the institutional, social and technological histories of these media, the influence of economic factors in shaping content, and issues surrounding regulatory policy. I like to give special emphasis to the media’s role in society, the concentration of ownership, the impact of new communication technologies, and increasing convergence of particular media.

This course meets on Thursday evenings, 6:00 – 8:45 PM.

Introduction to New Media

This course examines the cultural impact of new digital technologies such as the Internet, telephonic communication, and audiovisual media. We will survey the origins of digital communication and the Internet and engage closely with contemporary the work of seven contemporary on the impact and effects digital technologies, the Internet, the institutions that control these technologies.

This course meets on Wednesday mornings, 8:30 – 11:15 AM.
