Culture and Communication
“Culture” can be defined as the rituals, practices, and symbolic and physical artifacts that shape the behaviors of individuals, groups, institutions, and societies. Communication is central to the construction, maintenance and transmission of culture, as well as to cultural resistance and change. And it is the result of cultural practice. Annenberg’s cultural studies explore the complex relationship between communication and cultural practices and its implications for private, civil, and civic life.
