MS 135 PZ -Learning from YouTube
Instructor: Alex Juhasz
Description: What can YouTube teach us and is this how, what and all we’d like to learn? Over its hundred year history, radical media theorists have looked with utopian zeal to a moment in the media future which turns out to be upon us: a time where access to the production and distribution of media is democratically available outside channels organized by capital. So why is the technology being used primarily to spoof mainstream media forms and what does this tell us about the media, our society and political possibility?
