New course elective offered Fall 2017 semester in the School of Communication and Media at Montclair State University. Description: Food literacy requires much more than accruing facts or deciphering nutrition labels. Humans must actively engage across a wide variety of communication contexts and media platforms. Students in this course will develop and apply food media literacy skills to analyze, evaluate, create, and circulate knowledge about the histories, cultures, economies, and politics of food in the United States. Students will demonstrate their understanding of media languages, messages, audiences, and ownership through individualized and cross-platform media productions.
CMDA 320 Transmedia Storytelling is a recommended (although not mandatory) pre-requisite.
