This was definitely a class like no other. The subject of media, as a whole, was something I never put importance in as I thought, personally, it wasn’t an original thing. This course helped me changed my way of thinking about media whether it be pictures, advertisements, etc. One of the things that captured me was the discussions of “style” beginning with the question “what is style?” It was one of the topics you think you know well, but when the question is asked a bundle of what-if’s forms inside your head. Professor Ewens’s “All Consuming Images” helped clear out the definition, not to mention the discussions in class – style is personal. Media is all around us, there’s no way to avoid it that’s why this class helped me in uncovering the interests of media.
