Short content

With the expansion of the use of the Internet and social networks the opportunities for civic participation have increased. The course places the study of alternative media into the context of global governance, increased commodification of mass media and the rise of social movements. Attention is directed to the delimitation of concepts such as alternative media, radical media, community media, citizens’ media, and others. In the foreground is the understanding of the alternative, contrasting the alternative with the mainstream, and reflecting relationships between the alternative and the public. The course also deals with the analysis of selected empirical examples of alternative media and encourages students in their co-creation.
