CONCISION: Exploring ideas from Michel Foucault, Roland Barthes, and Mickhail Bahktin, #COM520 students Tori, Annabelle and Cynthia asked: Have you ever wondered what makes mainstream media so mainstream?
MEDIA EFFECTS: Kelly and Francesca summarized the video by identifying framing, priming and agenda setting as types of media influence.
ROAR ON TITAN: After exploring ideas from Henry Jenkins, John Fiske, Vanessa Domine and Neil Postman, Nani and Christine consider whether fandom practices are truly liberatory.
