INT370 Politics and the Media


Politics and the media are closely entwined. In this course you will be introduced to the way politicians seek to influence the media and you will evaluate the power the media has over populations. The impact of political advertising, media ownership, social media, surveillance, media law, and popular culture are investigated across international politics. You will investigate the coverage of foreign and international affairs and consider the constraints placed on reporting defence, terrorism, and war. Media regulation and the increasing importance of visual media/new media is also examined across a comparison of states in world politics.
