CMNS 402: Global Communication

In this course students will engage critically with problems presented by the production, distribution, and consumption of global media products, and will develop an understanding of the social, political, and economic influences that shape global media systems.

We discuss both mainstream and alternative media of various countries in the broader context of international media flows. Case studies focus mainly on North and Latin America, but readings and assignments offer scope for exploring the media systems of other regions.
