The resources included in this page include in-class activities, assignments, and other tools related to my courses on digital media, global cultures, cultural studies, and media history.
Dubbing Scholarship is an activity that gets students to think through and summarize an academic argument before delivering it as a character in a movie.
Practicing Supply Chains is a dynamic time-controlled in-class activity about contemporary supply chains and the obfuscation of information in digital networks.
The Netflix Country Dossier is a midterm assignment that allows students to build on theories of media translation and apply these to a real-world scenario: critically analyzing creative decisions in Netflix original programming for specific countries.
This is [a Nation] is 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.
Instead of a final paper, the Global Media Studies non-TEDx Talk is a final project that allows students to focus on a central issue from the class, summarize what they have learned, and articulate its importance for an audience outside the classroom.
