About Dr. Porter's Special Topics Class

Coming in the Fall of 2019, Dr. Porter will offer an elective class in which you will dive into the world of Black Mirror, the Netflix series that features stand-alone episodes chronicling dramas that explore the societal anxiety of media and technological advance.  In this class, you will watch Black Mirror episodes and discuss the ideas and theories posed by the show.  You will track various trends about the future of media and write reflections on each episode.  For your final project, you will also create their own concept and write a treatment for an episode of black mirror that reflects your own view of the future.
