COM 218 - Media & Patriotism

Course unit(s): 1
This course looks at the contested relationship between media and government in both historical and contemporary contexts.  Students explore the representation of war in American news and entertainment media, taking an historical view of popular narratives around military interventions from conventional wars to the twenty-first century war on terror.  Students will develop an understanding of the historical relationship between American foreign policy, popular history, media, and the press.  Among the questions to be explored are the public’s right to know, reporters’ access to information, and government censorship.
