Description: Media ABC is an introduction to the very idea of medium and media—as in “the medium of print.” The goal is to come to a basic understanding of that concept. The perspective of the course is historical and critical. The key assumption is that media—the human voice, manuscripts, printed books, telegrams, photos, film, TV, paintings, electronic files--shape their "content"--words, pictures, sounds—and also shape their authors and their audiences. There have always been media because life cannot be lived without them. We are now experiencing a digital revolution. This remarkable media shift puts us among the first explorers to arrive on the scene of epoch-making changes. We should take advantage of our own unique intellectual opportunity to look back on the history of media from the powerful new perspective of digital media—and also to contemplate the great void that no medium has yet filled, the spaces of communication that we cannot yet cross.

This year's topic is print—the dominant medium of communication for five centuries, its power and influence only now waning as we experience a digital revolution. This remarkable media shift puts us among the first explorers to arrive on the scene of epoch-making changes. We should take advantage of our own unique intellectual opportunity to look back on the history of print from the powerful new perspective of digital media.
