Stephanie DeBoer, Communication and Culture
DeBoer will use her grant to revise the structure of CMCL C202 Media in the Global Context. She hopes to change the course to better meet the department’s goals and to encourage students to become active participants in the classroom.
DeBoer will design new assignments that allow students to engage with media studies as critical users and cultural workers, as well as investigate the relationship between local and global cultural production. Since she also supervises other instructors of C202, DeBoer’s work over the summer will have an impact on multiple iterations of the course.
