Course summary

Overview

Developing on the basis of significant expertise in the culturally and historically contextualised understanding of media and communications practices, this masters programme will enable you to develop a substantively and methodologically rigorous approach to the challenges of international media communication today.

Typical areas of study include:

  • the history of contemporary media communications
  • new forms of political economy
  • agency in an era of digital media
  • geography and information infrastructures
  • the ethics and politics of communication practices
  • the symbolic and aesthetic forms of contemporary media

Our modules explore the rapidly changing world of contemporary communications practices and the problems such practices raise for the historical legacy of European Enlightenment traditions of thinking about economics, politics, society, and culture.
