  • Course Number: MCC-UE 1032
  • Hours: 45
  • Units: 4
  • Description: This course will examine “social media” from a cultural perspective, with a focus on how media technologies figure in practices of everyday life & in the construction of social relationships & identities. We will work from an expansive definition of what constitutes “social media,” considering social network sites, smartphone apps, & online games, among other technologies. The course itself will involve communication in social media channels in addition to the traditional seminar format, thus we will be actively participating in the phenomena under study as we go.
