It links Media Studies to Contemplative Studies, which integrates empirical social-science research (neuroscience, psychology) to first-person practices like meditation, yoga, and art therapy. Through academic essays and arts-based assignments, students strive to become more mindful digital citizens-creative yet critical, hopeful yet judicious with regard to the current and future course of technical development.

Additional Course Details: 

Seminar Title: Short Documentary Production - Over the course of the semester, five teams of three students will develop a short   (3 to 7 minute) documentary. The subject of the documentary will be established by the second day of class. Attention will be given in choosing a subject to what topics may be   of interest to a Public Television affiliate. Students are encouraged to choose an issue which is ongoing, and is being discussed in the media. At least part of the short documentary will involve a critique of mainstream media’s demonstrable handling of the issue. Students will learn all phases of pre-production, production, post-production, and promotion of their short documentary. Reading, viewing, and critiquing short documentaries, class discussion, group critiquing of each team’s work, and written critiquing will also be required throughout the semester.  Upon determining the subject of their short documentary, students will begin writing a treatment in which they describe the story they will tell, and how they plan to tell it. Once their writing has been refined to a point of producing a suitable treatment, an outline of shooting the film, research, and an optional task of storyboarding will begin (along with other preproduction tasks). Students will then begin producing and directing, using the available cameras, as well as lighting for interviews, and sound recording.  Editing may begin, as is often the case before production is completely done. More than half the semester will involve editing on the suites provided in the CMN media lab. The primary goal in producing these short documentaries is learning the process of producing a short documentary. Additional goals include possible airing on NHPTV if the docs meet their production standards and contain subject matter that is likely to be of interest to their audience. Co-majors are welcome in this course as well, and there are many suitable subjects that would be of interest if focused upon in a short documentary video. While there are no formal prerequisites in this class, the professor encourages those who have at least experienced once the process of making a video, preferably in CMN 596, CMN 597, or CMN 650.

Seminar Title: Sports, Play & Games in Interaction - Rules are the basis for our shared social order and language. In this class, we explore rules in sports, play, and games to examine the structure of rules themselves. We will show the way in which rules are not external constraints on settings, but are in fact productive resources used by participants in these settings (and many others) in order to manage the activities to hand. By playing games, examining the unstated codes of conduct in sports, and exploring rules in everyday interactions we will uncover some of the shared nature of our human social life.

Seminar 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 artifacts.
