Stanford University
COMM 1 / COMM 211 : Media Technologies, People, and Society
Fall 2004

Old and new media technologies are converging.  A new digital world combines traditional print, television, and film with computers, telephones, and communication networks to form a collection of products and services that significantly influence all aspects of personal and community life.  Communication 001/211 will look at the technologies and industries that make up the new world of "digital convergence."  We will examine their effects on psychological life, on industry, and on communities local and global through theorizing and demonstrations and critiques of a wide range of communication products and services.
