This course explores debates in digital media and provides an opportunity to combine theoretical analysis with online media practice. Our study will be framed by the idea of the “digital subject”. How are new digital platforms changing us (or nudging us to change ourselves) as social, cultural and political beings? How are they changing the ways in which we narrate our selves? Are these changes liberating, oppressive, or some mixture of the two? In this course, we will address such questions through critical readings of relevant media theory and through our own practices. Classes will be a mix of seminars and practical workshops and the course will explore the interface between theory and practice. NB: enrolment is limited to 18 students, with selection critieria as follows: 1)strong Grade Point Average in FTVMS (or equivalent for external students) courses; 2)statement of intent for digital project proposal.
