Is a photograph of an event somehow more real than a written report? Will the novel survive the age of new media? How do Instagram or Twitter change storytelling? In this class we will examine how media including film, radio, photography, smart phones, and even paper have been taken up by artists and writers to revolutionize representation. Studying visual, sonic and textual artists from across the world, we will explore how media affect the history of sensation and experience, how different media create alternative ways to compose narratives, and how media artists and activists conscious of gender, race, and class have shaped how we use a technology to make it into a medium. Authors and artists include Barthes, Sontag, Chun, L. Clark, McLuhan.
