This unit addresses the mutually constitutive relationship between communication practices, institutions and technologies and the social, economic and political worlds in which we live.It explores the relationship between technological change and change in social, cultural, political and economic practices, processes and institutions. Contemporary discourses in the field - from 'the information society' to 'globalisation', from 'cultural imperialism' to 'post-colonialism' and from 'medium theory' to 'neo-luddism. come under close scrutiny. We assume no one dominant theoretical perspective on these issues, so an important goal of the subject is to make students aware of different theoretical approaches and foci.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to demonstrate:
1. Critical and analytical understanding of various approaches to technology, communication and society;
2. Familiarity with emerging concepts regarding media technologies; and
3. A viewpoint of social policy issues in communication and media technologies.
