MEDIA EXPRESSION 8

OVERVIEW

The focus of winter trimester humanities classes is on approaching issues and ideas from different perspectives--deepening one's appreciation for the roots and branches of familiar points of view, and seeking an understanding of different ways of observing, understanding and acting.  

Media Expression is one of the electives.  How do we know what is true, either objectively or subjectively?  To what extent is it possible or desirable to be completely objective?  How does our vision of the truth inform our world view?  What is the relationship between truth and freedom (or agency)?  In what ways does media expression support--or interfere with--democratic processes?  We'll look at, and we'll create, many forms of media--old and new, broadsides to Twitter feeds.
