Organizer. Curriculum Innovations. December 27, 2012 - December 27, 2012
Curriculum Innovations ; In the spring of 2012, I designed and taught a new course entitled, "Cultures of New Media" -- a course that stems from my current research on the linkages between digital media and political culture in the Israel/Palestine context. This advanced undergraduate seminar tracked a long history of new media beginning in the late 19th and early 20th century (with a focus on the camera, the radio, and cinema) -- and progressed towards the more recent new media that have developed in the digital age. This class took an interdisciplinary approach, combining readings from Anthropology, Sociology, Science and Technologies Studies, Communications, and Critical Theory. The course culminated with a research paper which invited students to employ the theoretical tool box we have studied with a contemporary case study of their choosing.
