  • JRN 6101 Media Ethics and Law

    The course aims to introduce students, by way of specific case-studies ranging from the ancient world to the modern day, to innovative methods of studying the past that utilise popular forms of visual culture and propaganda. While recognising the complexity of the propaganda process and the various influences that form and shape images, the course will focus on the historical relationship between propaganda (in architecture, cartoons, film, painting, pamphlets, photography, posters, sculpture, and television) and politics. The focus on the theme of propaganda and its relationship with various forms of media through the ages allows for the opportunity to compare and contrast particular case- studies over time and geographical space and therefore to distinguish elements of continuity and change, which will help students to 鈥榬ead鈥 historic images critically, both as vehicles for understanding the past and in order to identify the relationship between propaganda and power.
