Communication Studies Assistant Professor Christopher House to Teach Introduction to Culture and Communication Online During Winter Session
Contributed by Laurie Arliss on 11/11/2013
Dr. Christopher House invites interested students to join him over the winter session for an online course experience. He will teach CLTC 10000, a liberal arts course focused on Culture and Communication (and required for that major). Students can register for winter 2014 on homerconnect.
The course explores and interrogates the ways that communication establishes and enacts identity and power dynamics. Students critically analyze social identities as they are communicated, shaped, and reshaped through communication. The main goal of the course is to make students, as global citizens, aware of the ways communication processes (like language, media, and discourse) are used to construct dominant and non-dominant social identities (such as race, class, gender, sexuality).
