Soc 314: Sociology of News
The purpose of this course is to consider the functions of print news in
developing views about society. Students will examine issues that span
the scope of the 20th and 21st centuries to examine how print media and
the nature of news have changed over time and what newspapers knew and
how they reported about events tied to race, religion, genocide,
sexuality, and class.
