First class session for Critical Theory and we get to meet our lecturer, Nicola Duffy.
She introduced the module to us and what we will be covering in the course of the semester.
Just to get started, she asked what critical theory? In my opinion of critical theory is “analysis of media content in a way that it provides information about our lives and culture. And we watched a youtube video on its anthropology. Its interesting that people portray different personality when they talk to their computer as if they can physically see their audience.
Also the youtube emergence as created a sort of community where people do all manner of things in the comfort of their room which sometimes leads to them getting famous and otherwise. The video really explains everything from the emergence of youtube, its history and what has changed and how it changed the world we’re living in.
