MDST 4380 - Violence & Media

Violence in Media is a seminar in which we study different productions of the visual representation of violence in America. The course includes viewing films, looking at photographs, readings from social theory and philosophy, and writing a term paper. We raise questions around the ethics of creating and consuming representations of violence, both representations that show fictional violence, in movies, representations of real violence. Prerequisite: A minimum of two successfully completed 2000 level courses in Media Studies, Sociology, Philosophy or Politics, or comparable fields.
