Description: Understanding "media" broadly, this class explores a range of historical and theoretical readings around the term. Typewriters, photography and television will be among our topics, guided by two primary questions: how have developments in media affected, even determined, human perception and communication, and how have artists and critics responded to such changes? In addition to all undergraduate requirements, graduate students will be assigned additional weekly readings and asked to write a final research paper of 20-30 pages. Graduate/Undergraduate Equivalency: HART 495. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for HART 595 if student has credit for HART 495.
