COM 655: The Mediated Self and Changing Relationships

Term: Spring 1 2015                    Instructor: John A. McArthur

COM 655 The Mediated Self and Changing Relationships This class investigates how specific digital and mediated platforms affect our understanding of essential interpersonal constructs such as relationship development and engagement, image management, the tensions of work-life balance and the challenges and opportunities of creating private and public identities in a mediated landscape. Students will study issues of identity by addressing how we compose our multiple and sometimes conflicting digital and media selves and how the presentation of our “work” self affects conceptions of our “private” self.
