AMST 382 - Advertising & Social Change
Advertising & Social Change investigates the significance and impact that advertising has on American culture.  We analyze how this institution is evolving in a new landscape featuring Social Media; moreover, what is meant by advertising being a “mirror and/or lamp”?
Throughout the semester students explore five constructs: the communication process; the significance of representations and interpretations; the correlation between said representations and cultural attitudes; the effects of time and space; and the emergence of new communication technologies on mass media.
