COMM 260 - GOOD&EVIL IN DSN FILM & MEDIA
(Formerly COMM360) From the anti-Semitic posters ofthe Third Reich to advertisements selling luxury products assembled by forced child labor in Africa and Asia, there exists an ethical paradox associated with visual representations in 20"‘ and 21st century design, film, and visual media. This course explores the power of visual images contained in these mediums and the ethical questions they often raise. Viewed through a broad lens of history, culture, identity and power struggle, students explore reactions and responses to visual images contained within design, film and media. Students parse the meaning, intent and purpose behind these images and develop an understanding of how perceptions of good and evil are often polarized among populations. Designers, filmmakers, journalists, and other media-makers create visual representations that convey messages to the public in an attempt to persuade the viewer to think or act a certain way. In this class, students understand how “visual propagandists" have worked within this context to sway peoples’ opinions.
