New Course for Fall 2018: Great Books in Media Research

GREAT BOOKS IN MEDIA RESEARCH

FALL 2018

TAUGHT BY: JULIA SONNEVEND

SECTION: A

CRN: 7020

Credits: 3

This course introduces graduate students to canonic books in media research written in multiple disciplines. Most graduate courses assign book chapters or articles; I would like to counter this trend by requiring students to read one book each week from cover to cover. No secondary literature or excerpts of primary literature will be assigned. On a practical level, the course aims to help students with the often seemingly immense task of writing a successful dissertation. More importantly, the course hopes to provide students with the joy of close reading of canonic books and help them, in the long run, write “great books in media research.”
