0.5 Credit

Hours per week:
  • Lecture/Discussion: 3

Taught in English. This course is about the Arab-Muslim minorities in Europe and North America and how they represent themselves in relation to the global society through digital media. Representation will be studied from a diversity of positions and settings. However, the main idea is to explore how the relationship between the self and the other is shaped. The course will explore issues related to migration, diaspora, social justice, and otherness. Students will be introduced to an interdisciplinary approach that encompasses media discourse analysis, cultural theory, anthropology and image analysis.
