About this Unit
Human communication takes many forms, and has many corresponding capacities: to bond, to represent, to express, to reveal, to record, to encode, to network - and more. Through communicative connections and associated actions human societies aim to accomplish ethical, political and personal tasks. This unit aims to examine communications as actions and forces as much as making meanings: verbal confession reveals personal truths and cultural belief; the printed word enables dissemination of new ideas about society and its structures; electronic messages connect in novel ways. Through looking at crucial forms and evolving communication techniques, this unit examines the powers of communication.
