Description

This subject invites students to think critically about ideas of nationhood and the ways that the media is involved in their creation, maintenance, and dissemination. It engages students to reflect on the meanings ascribed to nationhood and to consider the media's contribution to them. By exploring these ideas as well as their historical evolution within local, national, and global contexts, students develop their critical thinking skills. The subject firstly explores the representations of nationhood in the media. Secondly, this subject explores the ways different political and social groups use these different media outlets to tell their story. By exploring the place of nation and its role in the contemporary media landscape, this subject develops students' capacity to understand and, indeed, to situate themselves and their work in a global and changing workplace.
