Introduction to Media Production: Images of War is a Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies class taught by Kara Lynch.

Course Description

This course will introduce students to interdisciplinary work in media. Students in this class will be active readers, lookers, thinkers, and makers. War is a subject making activity. Whether through first-hand oral accounts, painting, photography, film, video or live web-streaming, war is imaged for our consumption and contemplation. This class will consider the relationship between images and military proliferation within daily life. We will look at how images function in both pro and anti-war debates and how they are crucial to our understanding of death and violence when associated with war. We will concentrate on modern warfare and the camera's framing of these engagements. This class will introduce students to critical skills that will enable them to describe, interpret and evaluate the ways in which images represent the world around us. Response, research, reflection and revision are key concepts within the structure of this class. Weekly reading and looking assignments will provoke written and visual responses. Students will participate in group work and dynamic class discussions. This class will prepare students for continued work in media and cultural studies, media production and the social sciences. NOTE: Enrolled or top 5 waitlist students who DO NOT attend the first class session risk losing their place on the class roster.
