Media, Modernities and the Everyday (6 points)
Synopsis: This unit introduces students to critiques of power in relation to the uneven development of modernity and media cultures. The history of concepts of power are examined in terms of the relationship between concepts and their socio-technical and economic conditions of emergence. The unit provides students with an understanding of the shift from industrial production to flexible accumulation and the impact this has had on global media cultures. The unit aims to identify how ordinary practices of the everyday are distinguished by media cultures engaged in contests of power and governance.
