Not “Social Media 101”

In our introductory class on Wednesday, I mentioned that we will be critically engaging with and debating contemporary thinking about digital media, which scholars once called “new media” but changed the phrasing to make it more precise.

This class will not teach you how to do effective social media campaigns. Honestly, you can learn that from this Vice article on how to talk down to your audience. Or you can go straight to the source of this criticism.

Instead of teaching you how to “do digital media,” I hope to teach you this semester how to think about digital media.
