  • Overview

    Journalism is presented in this course as a communicator of the arts and culture. Students will explore the diverse media that have evolved around the coverage of the arts, fashion, food, and wine, as well as literature, music, dance, theater, and cinema. Coverage of individuals, movements, events, exhibitions, and happenings is considered for critical reviewing, popular diffusion, and sociological and philosophical questioning. The course also studies strategies of how cultural and creative journalism is presented to the public from a visual and aesthetic point of view, drawing from examples found in printed and online media. Course projects and activities will interact with the journalism activities of Blending, the magazine and newsletter of FUA's campus press Ingorda. Prerequisites: Introduction to Journalism or equivalent.
