Media and Violence

Description:
This course will analyze the cultural aspects of violence in U.S. society. We will first analyze the different ways social scientists have strived to understand mass culture, mass media, and consumption in the past. Then we will discuss case studies and contemporary theories of media violence, keeping in mind that we are engaged in theorizing about things that are part of the every-day lives of not only ourselves but of most people in all regions of the world.
