Through a culturally-immersive learning framework, students in this course will explore how globalization (as process, practice, and system) intersects evolving conceptions of media, communication and culture as international phenomena.
Students from all majors are welcome, as the course is specifically designed to both link up with a wide array of disciplinary perspectives related to the subject, as well utilize student diversity regarding backgrounds and majors as a means to mutually enhance our understanding of the topics and perspectives we will engage in the course.
Utilizing directed engagements with the Czech and Central European cultural context (visiting Prague, Bratislava, Vienna, Budapest, Brno, Telč and Southern Moravia), students will explore the Local as a context for understanding the Global, considering how their own culture, media, and means for communication (language, technology, symbolism, etc.) frame and connect their knowledge and personal experience of the world to broader understandings of their identity and perspective in the world.
