Mobile Media: Media technologies shape the experience of human mobility. Since their origins, print and electronic media have moved text, image, sound, voice, narrative, and data over vast distances so that we can connect with people and places both real and imagined. Today’s smartphones and mobile devices have further extended our mediated mobility and created new digital pathways for virtual social connection and geographic exploration. This course examines the mobility of old and new media in all its senses. A variety of apps, tools and methods are used to understand and visualize how media technologies have changed our landscape, reorganized our senses, and reconfigured our perceptions of place and space.

Narratives of Mental Health and Illness: Humans are natural storytellers.  We make sense of our experiences by creating narratives of our identities, relationships, and social realities.  The stories we tell, become “dwelling places,” creating frameworks for interaction in different domains of our lives. This course will focus on narratives of mental illness and health.  Such narratives are complex as, at this time in history, western culture is actively trying to break long held beliefs that such illness narratives are private matters, best not discussed. The silencing of mental health stories has mirrored systemic mental health treatment underfunding and gaps in access. Along with the myriad impacts from the COVID pandemic, we are in what is being called a mental health crisis. Further, consider narratives of health and wellness. Media in general, social media especially, highlights narratives of being our best self, physically, mentally, and emotionally. In this course, we will explore how these narratives reveal and conceal the intricacies of individual experience, and the ways our cultural narratives impact our ability to think critically about illness, health, and wellness. We will consider how we craft stories of illness and wellness within relational, historical, social, political, economic, and cultural contexts. We will also critically explore a variety of topics relevant to narrative theory, including canonical stories, subjectivity, culture, time, secrets and lies, memory, trauma, reframing, and truth.  Using autoethnographic research methods, students will conduct original research projects. Readings include theoretical, methodological, autoethnographic, non-fiction, and fictional texts.
