This unit explores the relationship between contemporary communications technologies and practices, and social and environmental change. Students will develop skills in the use of emerging media, particularly social and other forms of online media. They will examine the communication and media practices of a range of local and international non-mainstream political and social campaigners, including NGOs, development organisations, independent bloggers and protest movements. The unit may include a field trip.
