RTVF 10093 - Media, Politics, and Social Values

This course examines how US television and film directly address social values, citizenship, and politics, and encourage individual citizens to participate in the political process. Topics might range from media images of the Great Depression or the Cold War to movies/TV programs depicting social problems (drug addiction, delinquency, crime) or social activism (workers' rights, unionism). All of the media studied will present specific interpretations of the rights and responsibilities of individuals and groups in their political and cultural environments; students will analyze and compare these interpretations.
