【Course Objectives】

Students will learn about intercultural communication’s relationship to social networking services (SNS; also referred to as “social media”). Topics will include: the origins of SNS, SNS’s influence on slang, theories of ‘attention economics’, and forms of online labor such as streaming, influencing, and content creation. Through this course, students will gain a deeper understanding of how intercultural communication is occurring on commercial platforms between users from different cultures who develop new “communities of practice” and “third cultures” out of intercultural interaction.

【Course Contents】

Coursework will be divided between individual readings of critical passages with written replies, and group work focused on three short presentations. Group presentations will present and explain an online trend/influencer in depth, using concepts from the course. A final solo presentation will introduce an online laborer (e.g. a YouTuber, Influencer, etc.) and analyze their work through course concepts.
