About this Unit
This unit examines critiques of power in relation to everyday media cultures and the uneven development of modernity. The history of concepts of power is considered in terms of the relationship between socio-cultural, technical, political, and economic conditions shaping media cultures in the context of the everyday. Working with the concept of 'uneven modernities', this unit provides students with an understanding of the shift from industrial production to flexible accumulation and the impacts of this on media cultures globally.
