Wilfrid Laurier University Waterloo, ON CS260Y COMMUNICATION, CULTURE, POLICY Intersession 2015 Mondays and Wednesdays 9:00-11:50am DAWB 2-108 Peter Urquhart Office: Woods 3-143 Telephone extension: 4150 Email: [email protected] Office hours: Monday 12:30-1:30pm and by appointment Description I n the face of an ascendant discourse of globalization, which tends to emphasize the porousness of national borders, this course introduces students to various debates surrounding the promotion and regulation by nation states of communication and cultural production. This course introduces a brief history of the language, structure, and formulation of policy approaches to, primarily, Canadian culture and communication. It introduces students to key frameworks informing policy debate (the nation-state, public sphere, media as industry) and some challenges facing the management of the communications sector (globalisation, convergence, and deregulation). Students will be provided with overviews of particular media industries and an understanding of how policy informs and functions through the particular debates about historic and emerging media regulation. Examples will be drawn from Canada and the U.S. as well as other communication markets/cultures. This course also introduces students to debates surrounding the regulation of communication, media technology, and cultural production. We will interrogate legislative and policy models designed to control piracy, obscenity, government support for the arts, telecommunications and broadcasting, media nationalism, propaganda, and global co-ordination of communication in relation to the public and private good.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
