Class Media, Sociedade e Cultura II

  • Presentation


    Tthe curricular unit Media, Society and Culture II (MSC II) is structured into thematic areas with direct relation to CICANT's main areas of research, with a focus on Media Arts, as well as Cultural and Creative Industries and  also, in New Technologies (ReLeCo “Media Arts, Creative Industries and Technologies” - MACIT).

    Thus, throughout the semester, the program contents will be organized into four main thematic areas, with several sessions being adjusted to the areas of interest and the profile of the doctoral students - namely:
    - Media and Modernity
    - Media Archeology and Remediation
    - Film Industry in Transformation
    - Marketing and Strategic Communication

    Furthermore, there is the intention to invite several CICANT researchers to make presentations on projects for which they are responsible or in which they participate, including projects that are aligned with the areas of interest of doctoral students.

  • Syllabus


    This CU follows a modular logic - the program was structured in such a way as to first expose students to some of the main authors who have been reflecting on Media and Modernity (Dosse, Gunning, Kitller, Cassirer, Postman, Parikka, among others), and then present authors and researchers in the field of Media Archeology, as well as relevant and/or ongoing work in this field – focusing on the concept and practices of Remediation (McLuhan, Bolter, Grusin). Furthermore, issues associated with Cultural and Creative Industries will be the subject of attention and reflection, in particular, the opportunities and challenges facing the cinema industry in Europe, in the context of digital transformation. Finally, the areas of applied communication will be considered, once again promoting critical reflection on the impact of Marketing and Strategic Communication on consumers and/or citizens in increasingly globalized societies.

  • Objectives


    The main objective of the Media, Society and Culture II (MSC II) curricular unit is to make it easier for students to understand the relationships between the Media and Society within the scope of Communication Sciences. In particular, there is the intention to train or reinforce the capabilities of doctoral students in critical thinking about the role of Media – traditional and new information and communication technologies – in contemporary societies.

    Furthermore, this UC is intended to allow doctoral students to define a more individualized path, as well as to create opportunities for integration or collaboration in work and projects of the associated Research Unit – CICANT – and other ECATI research centers.
