Anti-requisite(s): 55000 Communication and Information Honours Seminar


This subject examines a selection of contested key terms in the Australian intellectual, public policy and professional fields by reference to the theoretical resources offered by journalism, media studies, communication and information studies. Students explore how specific communication and information technologies, practices and impacts are interwoven with social organisation and processes of social change. The development of comparative analyses of key terms draws on different intellectual traditions and explores their usage in different contexts. The subject also facilitates students' capacity to understand their own theoretical constructs, to locate their own usage of key terms in relation to contemporary debates in intellectual policy and professional fields and to pursue research that contributes to those debates.
