BMS320H1: Media and Trauma


This course explores the intersection of media studies and cultural trauma theory through decolonizing frameworks. Students will learn theoretical foundations of cultural trauma theory with which they will engage mixed media narratives including film, books, music, video games and social media. Throughout the semester, we will focus on the construction of survivor-centered narratives amidst norms of popular media cultures and industries.
