Civic Communication and Media
CCM 245 Civic Media (4)
Examines uses of media to foster civic engagement. Through analysis of case studies students consider concepts such as participatory culture, citizen journalism, transmedia activism, and civic, radical and tactical media. We also develop understanding of civic media across platforms (oral, print, broadcast, digital), contexts (local to global, past to present), and use.
