COMM 227 - HISTORY OF JOURNALISM
History of Journalism examines how mass communication has shaped our nation and world. We consider recent practices, technologies, achievements, ethical confrontations and abuses through a prism of time, in some cases beginning long before the advent of newspapers, TV and the Web. The major focus is on journalism in United States history. The course should be of particular value to anyone considering a career in journalism or "new media," with their tumultuous changes and challenges, since history provides key precedents and perspective. Students with other orientations and career goals will also benefit. We will analyze how news and information has always been shaped by technology, economics, politics, ego and culture. This is a General Education Program course in the Topics Arts and Humanities category. Students will conduct a critical exmaination of media history through a text, other readings and contemporary examples in multimedia formats.
