Seminar: PS 315 The Politics of Media:
Cultural Representations of Politics
Oregon State University, Political Science


Oslo City Hall

For most citizens, access to politics is primarily mediated through various forms of communication and representation: be they newspapers, radio, television, films, web sites, blogs, facebook, etc.: In order to access political knowledge and to gain knowledge over politics, these media need to be consulted, consciously or subconsciously.

This course analyses various forms of cultural representations of politics in different media. First, we will discuss some theories of media and representation, and then apply these theories to different media examples. Students are provided with a selection of such examples, but are required to find some source materials of their own.
