iscussion 2.1: Converging Media
Let’s figure out how images and sound in the media have changed the cultural landscape of values in society over the years. In this post, evaluate converging media as highlighted in chapter 5. Below are some questions to consider:
The 1950s brought rock and roll into the American music scene. Why did rock and roll appeal so strongly to teenage girls during this time? What did that appeal mean for our cultural landscape?
What did digital recordings do to change the way we consume and analyze music? Was this a positive evolution?
Radio today is very specialized, with each station customizing its sound to reach niche audiences. Why was radio relevant when it was first invented? Has its relevance changed?
If you could envision the perfect radio station with the perfect format, what would it be? Why?
Now it’s time to put your readings and the connections you’ve made to work! Considering the questions listed above, write a two to three paragraph post that explores how sound recording and images have become mass mediums that strongly influence our culture. In your post, be sure to include one current example of radio that directly relates to the questions you chose to answer.
Your initial post (approximately 200-250 words) should address each question in the discussion directions and is due by 11:59 PM Central Time on Wednesday.
Your two response posts (approximately 125-150 words each) are due by 11:59 PM Central Time on Sunday.
Please remember to take ownership of your original post and answer all questions posed to you by other course participants.
