Podcasts, News Programs and other media: You do not have much time for television or listening to the radio but what would you watch or listen to if you wanted to know about the following:

  • Marxist views on global economic crisis
  • Grotian views on climate change
  • Kantian views on humanitarian intervention

Intended Learning Outcomes

An important way to understand international affairs is from the perspective of the ways in which mass media influences people's perceptions about global issues and events and how explicit and implicit biases within the media shape coverage in specific ways. Examining research problems in relation to specific theoretical constructs is intended to help you understand the lens through which particular media sources project coverage of big topics in international relations.
