The resources on this page include in-class activities, assignments, and other tools related to my courses on digital media, global cultures, cultural studies, and media history.

Who Gives a Damn about Media Theory?

A final project that offers students in a Media Theory class to express the critical material studied in creative form.

Dubbing Scholarship

This activity asks students to think through and summarize an academic argument before delivering it as a character in a movie.

Practicing Supply Chains

A dynamic time-controlled in-class activity about contemporary supply chains and the obfuscation of information in digital networks.

This is [a Nation]

A close-reading small group activity of international adaptations of “This is America” that gets students thinking about symbolic representation, dominant and resistant national publics, and music videos as global media.

Global Media Studies: A not-TEDx Talk

Instead of a final paper, this final project allows students to focus on a central issue in Global Media, summarize what they have learned, and articulate its importance for an audience outside the classroom.
