Walker 518, Faculty: Russ Newman
It’s common to hear that we’re experiencing a ‘communication revolution’ in entertainment and communication technology—but it is a revolution not just in gadgets but in policy as well. Communications policy plays a foundational part in determining what content is available to us, who will gain access to emergent means of communications, and what we’re able to do via these means. From issues of privacy to ’net neutrality’ to controversies surrounding social media, media makers need to pay?attention to these forces that are reshaping the environment in which they will work—and who is doing the reshaping. We’ll explore why.

Faculty Showcase #15: Becoming a Shakespeare Detective
Walker 527, Faculty: Craig Mathers
William Shakespeare has often been regarded as the world's greatest playwright but how are we, as contemporary, modern humans to be expected to wade?through and parse his heightened language? Well, part of his brilliance as a playwright and artist was that he left a "trail of breadcrumbs" for his actors on how to perform in his plays (in this sense he was an astonishing director as well as a brilliant playwright.) We will spend our class delving into his hidden secrets in order to unearth his directorial mind, and, in so doing, we'll become detectives of Shakespeare!
