CANTH 1150 FYS - Media & Migration: Globalization of Communication & Culture

This first year seminar course surveys the global production, dissemination, and consumption of media by individuals, families, and communities as they build relationships across national borders and use media to maintain connections, to represent themselves, and to understand the migration experience. Course materials examine the historical and social contexts in which these media forms have been used, highlighting the relationship between media, migration, and the formation of social and cultural identities.
