Today I finalized the syllabus for my Principles of Media Studies course, which is an introduction to basic issues in the field. I'm offering it to you here because I have benefited from reading other people's, e.g., Chuck Tryon's Technology and the Language Arts Curriculum (tentative at the time) and Cory Doctorow's Pwned, on copyright in the digital age.

(I decided to make a course website using Google's page creator instead of using the university's "Desire 2 Learn" software partly because I don't like D2L's interface and partly because I wanted the site to be accessible to anyone. Someday perhaps I will learn how to design for the web for real, but for now Google will do--it's free and easy.)
