MEDIA 231

Eco/media


Description

Eco/media introduces students to the increasingly important and varied role that nature, environment, and ecology play in media, film, and television studies. Students explore how environmentalism is communicated through various media, how the mediation of flora, fauna and the earth’s atmosphere offers powerful new insights into media texts, and how media production and consumption can be analysed using ecological frameworks.

For full course information see the Digital Course Outline for MEDIA 231.
