Course Title & Description: Media and the Environment - There are few topics, beyond communication itself, which better reflect our interconnected humanity than “the environment.” Mediated environmental messages surround us, whether about expansive issues like climate change or the newest, organic or sustainable product. These mediated messages often come together or diverge around conceptualizations of our environment hinging on risks and uncertainties about the fundamentals of contemporary society. This course will look at the study and practice of the environment and media through a range of concepts, ranging from the “sacrificial landscape” reflected in television shows such as the first season of HBO’s True Detective to the “growth machine,” as a persistent framework to understanding risk amid the imperative of economic growth in contemporary capitalism.

Course Title: Theorizing YouTube - How many YouTube videos have you watched today? How about videos on Instagram or TikTok? What about livestreams on platforms like Twitch or Facebook? Digital video, much of it amateur or semi-professional, has come to dominate social media and the internet—accounting for everything from entertainment to political
activism. YouTube, founded in 2005, began the transformation of the primarily text and image-based internet to a more video heavy experience.

This class is designed around studying the history and cultural impact of YouTube, as well as social media-based video more generally. We’ll study the history of YouTube, and immerse ourselves in the present culture, forms, and genres of YouTube. We’ll look at the phenomenon of ‘YouTube stars’ and the emergence of influencer culture on the platform. We’ll study the growing body of scholarship and popular commentary and criticism of YouTube and related platforms. We’ll look at the debates around free speech and concerns over political extremism and conspiracy theories. YouTube will be our focal point through which we will examine many of the larger topics related to video-based social media platforms: entertainment, identity, journalism, education, cultural production, fandom, politics, community, marketing, and public discourse. In addition to the expected components of a writing intensive class, students will also have the opportunity to use the modality of video to enhance their scholarship: curating, remixing, and even creating original critical video pieces.

In the past century, communication and transportation technologies connected the world as never before. As people and ideas move with increasing ease, how are traditional notions of culture being reinforced or broken down? How do ideas about culture create and justify inequalities between different nationalities, socioeconomic classes, and racial and religious groups? How can we distinguish between mutually beneficial cultural exchange and exploitative forms of appropriation? This course uses theory and contemporary case studies from news, social media, and popular culture to shed light on the construction of culture and cultural difference from classical theories to contemporary ideas of global cosmopolitanism and hybridity. This course does not provide a definitive definition of what culture is, but rather explores the political and economic consequences of mediated ideas of culture, including its relationship to race, class, and transnational inequities. Indeed, one of our first tasks in this class is to question what we mean when we talk about “culture.” We will look at how social value and inequality are constructed using ideas about culture and identify the new currency of cultural difference in global times.

Course Title & Description: Communication and the Body -  The human body is a rich and complex communicative resource. In this class, we will examine how the body, in coordination with talk, contributes to meaning making in face-to-face interaction. We will look closely at the movements of the eyes, face, hands, head, torso, and legs, as well as the use of objects and space, for their role in the moment-by-moment accomplishment of a range of activities: opening and closing encounters, telling stories, aligning to an interactional partner, and so on. Although we will
mainly draw on interactionist studies of the body, we will also consider cognitive, cultural, developmental, and even evolutionary themes in our investigations. Class will center around the use of videotaped data to examine embodied behaviors in interaction.

Course Title & Description: End of Life Communication - Images of death are ubiquitous in our society, yet to speak of death openly is so taboo that grief has become a "silent epidemic," especially among young adults. This course examines end of life (EoL) communication in a variety of contexts. We will take a close look at how people communicate about death and dying, how people communicate with the dying and the bereaved, and the rituals and practices through which we create meaning out of loss. Throughout the semester, we will attend to the social construction of death in our culture and other cultures, and interrogate why some deaths are treated with dignity and respect, while others are relegated to the margins. Death imbues communication with profound significance. It is hoped that this course will allow students to cultivate a dialogic relationship with death, and ultimately, gain a deeper appreciation of life.

Course Title: Rhetoric of the Photograph - In this class, we will explore the enormous rhetorical powers of photographic images - whether combined with photographic images - whether combined with text or not - to inform, educate, delight, and, of course, persuade viewers. We will learn how to consider the rhetorical function of photographs that were taken with the intent to record as well as those that were taken with the intent to persuade; “disposable” photographs as well as famous “classics”; single, unique photographs as well as those commonly embedded in social movements and photo-essays; contemporary photographs “in the prime of” their original rhetorical function as well as some that have outlasted their original message to take on new rhetorical functions. In addition to thinking about particular photographs, we will also consider the ethos of photography itself as a scientific imaging technology. We will supplement our viewing by reading what some of the theorists have had to say about photographs and other kinds of pictures. And, finally, we will sample some of the work rhetorical critics have produced as the discipline has expanded to acknowledge the importance of visual as well as verbal rhetorical artifact

Course Title: Podcasting -  Podcasting has exploded in popularity over the past few years. As a means of self-expression, sharing information, instruction, marketing, or expressing opinions, podcasting at its best and most effective is not just a casually produced audio report on an issue or high points from an interview. Creating an engaging, substantive podcast provides and
opportunity to inform and express on a high level, and deliver a finished product in a relatively short period of time.

We will listen to the work of many of the top podcasters, who spend hours carefully constructing their episodes. We will learn and use many of the same methods of writing, storytelling, speaking, audio production, and post-production traditionally used in podcasts today. Each student will choose from myriad topics and develop a series on a chosen topic. There will be a requirement of a minimum of one podcast episode every other week. Over the course of the semester, students will work at developing and enhancing their ability to produce
sophisticated content which includes strong narrative communication.
