Spectacle and the City

This two-week study-abroad intensive bridges empirical observation with archival research in major urban cities. Focusing on multimedia communication channels we analyze the city’s hallmark spectacles in advertising, public media, and architecture to inquire: how do spectacles communicate on ideological and sensory registers? Can we enjoy and remain critical of communication and consumption in the city? Upon return, students will develop a visual project in response to the course themes.
