This course is designed to explore how communication creates, and is created in, social and cultural contexts. By "communication" we are drawing attention to all means and media of communication. By "social contexts" we draw attention to specific scenes of social interaction in which communication occurs. By the end of the course, you will have some knowledge of the diverse communication resources that various people have created around the world, what happens when these contact each other, a way to unravel and critically reflect upon these processes, and a mode of explaining communication which relies less on psychological and individual differences, and more on the cultural coding of everyday life.
