Anthropology of media at Johns Hopkins

November 16, 2008

There is now an exciting site on media anthropology built around an undergraduate course taught by Anand Pandian at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, Maryland, USA). See, for instance, their comprehensive and up-to-date Resources page. This is from their homepage:

“Anthropology of Media” examines the profound mediation of contemporary life from an anthropological standpoint, focusing on the social worlds fashioned and inhabited through the production, circulation, and consumption of media artifacts.  Drawing on over 50 case studies from around the world, the projects and postings found here explore the politics of media representation, the work of media on desire and the body, the social and material practices through which media technologies are manufactured and circulated, and the worlds of imagination they propel us toward. We invite you to explore these works in progress.
