CCT320H5 • Communication, Technology, and Social Change


This course explores how media and media technology have shifted the nature of the existing political and social orders, We will focus on how social movements and political challengers have used media to disrupt and, in many cases, overthrow leaders, corporations, and governments. This will bring us in contact with theories of social movement mobilization, political communication, and digital media. We will also explore the ways that legacy and digital media have changed to be in service of misinformation and state repression.
