Course Title & Description: Autoethnography -  This capstone course will provide students with an in-depth understanding of the theory, method, and ethics of autoethnography. As the name implies, autoethnography explores cultural phenomena through the lens of lived experience, connecting biography with history, psyche with society, self with other. The class will learn about and experiment with various autoethnographic forms (e.g., evocative, analytical, performance, multi-voiced, layered accounts), and each student will undertake a semester-long autoethnographic project, which they will perform at the end of the semester and revise for potential submission to a journal. Ultimately, students will come to appreciate the power of autoethnography and personal narrative to shine light on terrains of human experience that are unreachable via traditional research methods. They will also develop a relational ethics of care towards the subjects of their inquiry.

Course Title & Description: Media and Global Populism - The rise of nationalist populism in established democracies across the globe has inspired considerable shock. From India to Brazil, across Europe and North America, nationalism and growing authoritarianism divide societies and threaten human and minority rights. This course examines how the current moment of populist upheaval relates to contemporary mainstream political and media discourse. This course explores how media contributes to populist discourses that divide the nation. Media are crucial for defining shared ideas of who represents "the real people" and whose lives matter most. In the first part of the course, we explore populism's definitions and the media's role in its emergence. What are the historical roots of populism? How have populists historically used new media to reach and influence the public? What distinguishes various forms of populism, and how do they overlap with authoritarian and democratic politics? The second part of the course will examine the media's role in different populist movements worldwide. Students will conduct original research on a single national populist movement over the course of the semester. The capstone project is an online multimedia research portfolio, which includes background research briefs and creative research project options. We will start from the ground up; no prior knowledge is required. Together, we will explore what these different national movements have in common and what they reveal about the future of democracy in an increasingly interconnected world.

Special Topics 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 preproduction, production, post-production, and promotion of their short documentary. Reading, viewing, and critiquing short documentaries, class discussions, 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.
