Led by Columbia film scholars Debashree Mukherjee and Ying Qian, this summer 2017 program will take students to Mumbai and Beijing to investigate contemporary media practices in India and China. Through visits to sites of media production, exhibition, and consumption, and meetings with a wide array of media practitioners, including independent documentary filmmakers, minority media activists, media corporations, and state institutions for media regulation and creation, students will discuss media in relation to (post)colonial conditions, authoritarianism, oppositional politics, urbanization and globalization.
Open for course credit to rising juniors and seniors in all Columbia schools. Generous financial aid is available.
Applications will be due in early December 2016.
November 4th: Information Session (1-2 PM in International Affairs Building, Room 918)
