As part of my 3rd year of my B Media (Communications & Media) degree at UNSW, I am taking up the subject ’ARTS3091 Advanced Media Issues: New Media, Cultural & Social Change’ for Semester 1 2012
Throughout the duration of this course, this blog will encompass a variety of different posts about my reflections and analysis on several key topics and readings relating to the changes in media, culture and society, and the interelation of these aspects; how changes and transformations of each impact one another and what it means for us. Particularly, I will focus topics and theory towards the practice/field of Journalism when possible, as it is the field of Media with which I aim to make a career in.
As such, I have named this blogsite ‘Media In Transformation’, and will be publishing short essay-like reflections with various media content for each in a manner that is easy to understand and follow. This blog is my published work. So, not only is this blog intended for the ARTS3091 course and my personal understanding of the various topics, but it’s an open blog for anyone and everyone to gain a little insight into my understanding, as a journalism/media student, of the issues surrounding ‘New Media, Cultural & Social Change’.
