Program description

Performance, Television, and Social Media

This course examines the intersections of performance and media--specifically the media forms of television and social media in the U.S.--with a focus on how various types of difference (race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and socioeconomic class) are enacted, articulated, represented, and played on TV and social media platforms.

Program content

  • Become a well-educated observer and analyst of current trends and shifts in media and new media

  • Be able to use course readings to critically think about media and new media
  • Learn to apply core concepts of Marxist cultural studies to analyze media phenomena
