CMNS 302: Communication in History Report a Broken Link

Communication Studies 302: Communication in History is designed to help you situate the history of communication technology in Western society; it does this by focusing separately on specific technologies at particular moments, and then revisiting those technologies at other moments. In this way, the course highlights important and recurring themes in the invention, introduction, and establishment of such technologies as writing, the printing press, photography, the telegraph, the telephone, film, radio, television, and the computer. The course also suggests the interplay among these technologies. Finally, Communication in History introduces some of the debates about the relations between communication technologies and the people who use them.
