Sociology Of Mass Media

This course familiarizes students with selected issues in the sociology of mass media. It is not necessary to have previous background in relevant sociology courses (because I will be giving an introductory lecture that aims to get all students on the same page), but relevant background can certainly be useful. Relevant background includes courses on media institutions, media and social issues, political sociology, or social movements.
