[JOUR 350] Media and the Anthropocene
Many scientists and researchers across the globe now agree that the Anthropoceneâ€”the word proposed to describe a new geological epoch defined by the earth-shaping consequences of human activityâ€”has arrived. This course explores the media landscape of the Anthropocene, focusing on various ways in which filmmakers, podcasters, and other digital storytellers are attempting to make sense of the challenges we humans face during this moment of profound geological and ecological change. In addition to examining the work of others, students are required to produce their own digital media projects, using a variety of audio, video, and web-based production tools.
