Media and Risk
- Course Number: ENGL 237
- Catalog Course Entry: ENGL 237
- Quarter: Fall 2021
Same course as FAMST 252MR.
This seminar interrogates mediations of risk and uncertainty, and related speculative practices, to theorize the concept of “risk media.” Among its primary concerns will be 1) risk as the taming of uncertainty, 2) risk, as coming harm, requiring mediation to become legible, and 3) radical uncertainty inspiring speculative media.
