2. Objectives (expected learning outcomes)
After taking this seminar you are familiar with research on a specific subfield of media culture. You are able to read and process the relevant literature and to apply your findings in original research, working as a group. You are able to write a relevant and well-formulated report and to present it to the group.
3. Course content
Each year a specific aspect of media culture will be analysed. In the academic year 2007-2008, we are looking at the history of public broadcasting. Moving on from existing research, the group works on an oral history project interviewing (former) public broadcasting employees about their career. In this way, we want to gain a 'view from below', as opposed to official broadcasting histories written on the basis of official documents and policy analyses.
