HFMK03305U FM, Module 1: Organizational and institutional analysis - Lectures

Volume 2017/2018

Master in Film and Media Studies, 2016-curriculum


This course provides a comprehensive overview of media institutions and organisations, their emergence, structuration and contemporary transformation. Participants will be introduced into classical and modern sociological theory of institutions and organisations as well as theories of management. Applied to the media, the course will offer a comprehensive overview on the emergence of global media industries which comprise several organisational types and institutions that range from public to private, from hierarchical to networked. The focus will be on comparison in two dimensions: first differences and similarities of types of media institutions and organisations (film, news, broadcasting and intenet) and comparison across different social and cultural contexts (within Europe and beyond).
