Course content

This interdisciplinary course builds on the common interests of those who study media, politics, philosophy, economy, language and communications, and offers a unique perspective on media and culture. It will give you the opportunity to reflect critically on, and analyse the relationship between, culture and politics, most vividly illustrated today in the rise of identity politics, new social movements, and the increasing ‘mediatization’ of politics.

You will develop a broader understanding of politics, one that goes beyond its institutionalized expressions to include cultural practices and everyday life and will better appreciate the impact of contemporary culture and communication on society and political life. You will study the media as institutions, texts and systems of communication, exploring their role in the exercise of political, social and cultural power and will have the opportunity to develop skills for a career in media, creative industries, politics and related fields.
