CINE 244 - When Old Media Were New: Global Histories of New Media

FC ARHU
4 credits
In this class we will take a critical approach to contemporary media technologies by unearthing failed and forgotten media oddities of the past. We will theorize what media were and speculate about what they can potentially become by putting our historical studies of old media (pre-cinematic optical devices, gramophones, and panoramas) in juxtaposition with our explorations of new media (PS5, 3D cinema, Zoom). Course topics will include considerations about whether media can “die,” the specter of zombie media, and new media in their geographic contexts.
