Gender Race Class in Media
“Radio, television, film and other products of media
culture provide materials out of which we forge our
very identities, our sense of selfhood, our notion of
what it means to be male or female, our sense of class,

‘us’ and ‘them.’ Media images help shape our view of the
world and our deepest values: what we consider good
or bad, positive or negative, moral or evil.”
-Douglas Kellner

(Dr. NO/Blofeld), and the hyperventilated vocabulary
lathered and blathered in ambiguity and the unfunky boredom
of the talky-talk classroom so that

RESEARCH BECOMES COOL!

Interpersonal Communication
Relational Competence
This course is an attempt to provide a sketch with a picture,
a blueprint, guiding principles, comparisons, moments of
analysis, moments of introspection, attribution, recollection,
the applications of specific theories, factors, insights to avoid
stumbling into the relationship abyss we call home.

I hope to
digitize 43 short films I directed in graduate school
when we were still using splice tape and a movieola. I better
get started before the format changes again.
