American Media History

Communication 222 - D1 - SB

This course is designed to highlight the people and the technological, economic, political, and social trends involved in our rapidly changing media environment.

 

We look specifically at how media of information, persuasion, and entertainment have evolved from the mechanical devices that the colonists used, to steam-powered and then electrical media of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and finally to today's ubiquitous digital media.
