Comments
Contemporary media constructs our understanding of nature and reflects our fears and fantasies about rapidly changing environmental conditions. My Green Media courses analyze projects, (fictional & fact-based) that investigate our relationship to climate change, pollution, environmental justice, wildlife extinction. The courses interpret the word media broadly to include film, games, social media, media-art, big data visualization, simulation and sensing. They look at eco-media issues that unpack questions of the consciousness-raising power of media; material perspectives that trace the physical impact of our media obsessions; biopolitical questions of human/non-human boundaries; and affect-theory-driven examinations of eco- optimism, pessimism, gaia-ism, nihilism.
  Course Description
Polar bears pacing frantically on melting ice; SUVs gloriously conquering mountain terrain; post-civilization humans struggling for survival on a devastated earth: contemporary media reflects our fears and fantasies about our rapidly changing environment. This course analyzes fictional and documentary media that investigate our relationship to nature: climate change, pollution, environmental justice, wildlife extinction. The course interprets the word media broadly to include film, games, social media, media-art, big data visualization, simulation and sensing. It examines the consciousness-raising power of film, media and journalism; traces the ecological impact of our obsession with the latest media device; and ponders the relationship between our feelings about our changing planet (denial, engagement, optimism, hopelessness) and our actions.
