SOC 298 - Racism in the US Media

This course explores racialized narratives in the U.S. media ecosystem. We will examine how media has historically shaped our perceptions of racial tensions in the 20th century U.S. context, how the introduction of new media forms has fractured this once more streamlined process, and what opportunities and challenges this presents for both producers and consumers of media. In order to produce quality, social-justice oriented digital content, the course will also dedicate time to learning the techniques of audio production: ethical considerations, story outlines, recording equipment, interviews, and postproduction.
