LASS 925 - Mass Media And The Arts

3 credits
The purpose of this course is to develop an understanding of mass media and popular culture, primarily in the United States since the 1890s. Various forms of mass media are defined and the shared techniques by which these forms seek to communicate are analyzed. Finally, the values, both aesthetic and social, embodied in both these media and popular culture are examined in relation to social and economic change.
