課程描述
Course Description

本課程針對的學生是成長於全球化快速變遷的多媒體環境中,他們亦想要成為擁有素養的文化關鍵消費者和製造者。透過跨學門的比較及歷史性的觀察角度,這門課程廣泛地從口頭、印刷、戲劇、攝影、廣播、電影、以及數位等文化形式和實務來為「媒體」下定義。本課程著眼於間接溝通的本質、媒體的功能、媒體及機構轉變過程的歷史,以便協助定義媒體在社會中的角色。

Introduction to Media Studies is designed for students who have grown up in a rapidly changing global multimedia environment and want to become more literate and critical consumers and producers of culture. Through an interdisciplinary comparative and historical lens, the course defines "media" broadly as including oral, print, theatrical, photographic, broadcast, cinematic, and digital cultural forms and practices. The course looks at the nature of mediated communication, the functions of media, the history of transformations in media and the institutions that help define media's place in society.

在這一學期的課程中,我們將從各種不同假設性的角度探討關於媒體的角色和力量是如何影響我們的社會價值觀、政治信念、認同度以及行為。學生們也能有分析特定的媒體形式的機會(像是電影和電視節目)和探討當特定敘述使用在不同的媒體類型時所產生的改變之意義。我們將著眼於社會階級、性別及種族政治學是如何影響大眾傳播媒介的生產過程和接受度。多位客座教授也都以呈現對大眾傳媒不同的觀點為主題發表了演說。透過同樣也是他們的寫作和口頭報告的閱讀、講座以及討論,學生們不但能有多重的機會去從事此領域內批判性的辯論,而且也能探討大眾傳媒在他們的生活中所扮演的角色。

Over the course of the semester we will explore different theoretical perspectives on the role and power of media in society in influencing our social values, political beliefs, identities and behaviors. Students will also have the opportunity to analyze specific media texts (such as films and television shows) and explore the meaning of the changes that occur when a particular narrative is adapted from print to visual forms in different time periods. We will look at the ways in which the dynamics of class, gender, generation and race influence both the production and reception of media. To offer different perspectives on media, several guest speakers from the MIT faculty will also present lectures. Through the readings, lectures, and discussions as well as their own writing and oral presentations, students will have multiple opportunities to engage with critical debates in the field as well as explore the role of media in their own lives.

課堂/視聽/小組 課程
Lecture/Lab/Section Meetings

每週一、三上課,課程時數各1.5小時。在週一下午會有一堂三小時的視聽與討論課程,請務必到席。影片部份大約兩小時,討論部分則約一小時。在第三堂課經過1.5小時之後,我們會以加長為2.5小時的討論課程作為開始。有關課程作業的講義也會在第三堂課時發給大家。作業的內容也許會和同學們之前再註冊時拿到的不大相同。在第五堂課時會開始影片教學。
21L.015 meets every Monday and Wednesday for 1.5 hours. On Monday evening, there is a mandatory lab/screening/discussion section for 3 hours. Screenings take place for 2 hours, and discussion sections meet, for 1 hour. After our 1.5 hours - lecture #3, we begin with an extended discussion section for 2.5 hours. A handout on section assignments (number) will be distributed during lecture #3. These assignments may differ from those students already have from the registrar. Screenings begin on the evening of lecture #5.

出席和課堂參與
Attendance and Participation

由於我們的課堂就是一個學習社群,出席率和課堂參與在成績上佔有非常重要的部分,佔了總成績的15%。如實地出席課程和規律的參與活動是必要的。假如你缺席超過三次以上,這將會影響到你的期末成績。遲到三次以上(上課十分鐘後才進教室)算作一次缺席。假如你是因為私事或是身體嚴重不適等緊急狀況,請在上課之前盡快聯絡講師或小組組長(或請院長通知我們)以及想辦法補課。

Attendance and participation in class and section are very important and count for 15% of your grade. Since our class functions as a learning community, it is essential that you attend class faithfully and participate regularly.
If you have more than three absences, it will affect your final grade. Three latenesses (more than ten minutes) count as an absence. If you are absent because of a personal or medical emergency, please contact the instructor or your section leader (or have a dean contact us) as soon as possible and set up a plan for the completion of missed course work.

萬一你缺了課,聯絡其他同學以複習上過的課程內容便是你的責任。

In the event that you miss a class or section, it is your responsibility to contact another student in the course or section to review the material covered.

書面和口頭作業
Written and Oral Assignments

21L.015是一門溝通密集(CI)課程;寫與說是本堂課不可或缺的部分。論文和短篇寫作訓練能讓學生將平時上課內容,閱讀,影片,及討論部分的內容和日常生活作結合。在這學期的課程中,我們將著重於有顯著成效且兼顧人文和社會學的寫作及口頭報告技巧。同學在學期結束之前將會完成25~30頁的寫作以及三次口頭報告。除此之外,在準備你的期末論文時,你也會有機會能練習修訂論文的能力。

21L.015 is a Communication-Intensive (CI) course; writing and speaking are critical parts of the class. Essay assignments and shorter writing exercises enable students to make connections between the lectures, readings, screenings, discussion sections and their own lives. Over the course of the semester, we will stress strategies for effective writing and oral presentations in the humanities and social sciences. By the end of the semester you will have completed 25-30 pages of writing and three oral presentations. In addition, you will have the opportunity to practice the craft of revision in the preparation of your last essay.

成績計算
Grading

在指定日期繳交或是報告作業(書面或口頭)是非常重要的;遲交或是未在指定日期報告可能會扣期末成績。假如你是因為私事或是身體嚴重不適等緊急狀況,請在上課之前盡快聯絡講師或小組組長(或請主任通知我們)以及想辦法補課。

It is very important that assignments (written and oral) be submitted or presented on or by their due dates; late submission or presentation of work may result in a lowered final grade. In the event of personal or medical emergency, please contact (or a have a dean contact) the instructor and your section leader as soon as possible.

期末將以四篇論文,短篇寫作練習,口頭報告和共同課程及分組課程的出席率及課堂參與作為成績計算標準。

At the end of the course you will be graded on your four essays, short writing exercises, oral presentations and general class and section attendance/participation.

抄襲
Plagiarism

未經標示便擅自使用他人的論文對作者來說是很嚴重的非法行為。凡是犯了抄襲行為的學生該科將以F計算,且該科的講師會將此案例轉交給紀律委員會。凡是從課外資源得到的所有資訊的出處一定要清楚的註明在繳交的書面作業中。所有從他人作品中擷取的概念,論據,直接措辭都必須要確認並且完整的標示於註腳中。引文必須標示清楚,以和學生自己寫的內容作分隔。想獲得更進一步關於適當的的寫作型式的諮詢,你可以參觀本中心的網站

The use of another's intellectual work without acknowledgement is a serious offense. It is the policy of the Literature Faculty that students who plagiarize will receive an F in the subject, and that the instructor will forward the case to the Committee on Discipline. Full acknowledgement for all information obtained from sources outside the classroom must be clearly stated in all written work submitted. All ideas, arguments, and direct phrasings taken from someone else's work must be identified and properly footnoted. Quotations from other sources must be clearly marked as distinct from the student's own work. For further guidance on the proper forms of attribution consult the style guides available in the Writing and Communication Center. You may visit their website.
