Courses: Topics in City and Media-Popular Cultures in East Asia (ANTHB335001)

Fall 2012

Class Number: 1469
Mass media raises ever-changing global issues in study and praxis in Cities. This advanced seminar looks closely at media through a limited lens - the mediation of a single city (Hong Kong, Philadelphia, Los Angeles), questions of genre (cinema, television, web) or around particular theoreticians and questions (Barthes and myth; Marxism and media). Topics will vary. Haverford: Social Science (SO)
Current topic description: This course examines different forms of
popular culture in East Asia. Looking at TV soap operas, animation,
music, and fast food, we will explore how class, gender and national
identities are constructed and contested through pop culture that is
shaped by these social relationships in specific political and
historical contexts.
