COM2062 Oral Tradition and Media

This interdisciplinary seminar will examine significant social, technological, historical, artistic and psychological forces that have shaped our lives in the last century. Questions such as the following will be addressed: What impact has the shift from an oral tradition to text to electronic media had on our lives? What quality of human contact and development occurs through listening, telling and reading stories? What cultural values and messages are transmitted through modern media? What are the implications to moral development? Through oral story telling, discussions, readings, presentations, field study, viewing mass media, and writing critiques, students will develop a conceptual framework for understanding the influences that have shaped their perceptions of the world.
