CMST Special Topics: Social Media & Everyday Life
CMST 3890: Selected Topics in Communication Studies – Social Media & Everyday Life
MWF, 01:10p – 02:00p
This course examines the relationship between social media and everyday life from global and ethnographic perspectives. We understand “social media” as an assemblage of media forms and communicative practices that create new forms of sociality in everyday life. Instead of the familiar question of “what new media do to people,” we will focus more on “what people do with media” in the course of their everyday lives.
