Especially in context of rapid and relentless change in digital technology, contemporary society is also witnessing tumultuous evolution in the mass media, and in the ability of citizens to participate in the public sphere. In the domains of free speech, journalism, civic participation, copyright and more, the relentless pace of technological innovation presents new challenges for both the audiences and the producers of media content. In this course, we will explore the ethical and legal foundations of the mass media, and connect past cases and principles that can guide current and future action by media professionals and citizens. Prerequisite(s): COMM 300A  or DCIN 300  or other approved course in research writing.
