Digital Policies in a Global Context: Current Issues, Concepts and Analysis CMNS 333 (4)
We will investigate current policy issues and case studies from Canada and around the world to examine communication policy as a field shaped by change and continuity. Students will get an introduction to communication policy analysis with the aim to sneak and write analytically about current challenges such as network neutrality, copyright, content regulation and data protection. Students will discuss the tensions that arise between the national-regional and global jurisdictions, and how these are relevant to their everyday life. Prerequisite: One of CMNS 230 or 240, with a minimum grade of C-; and one of CMNS 202 (or 262) or 261, with a minimum grade of C-.
