This semester I'm taking a Social Media course that's being offered for the first time at the University of Hartford. I'm really excited about it, as I've been leaning more and more towards a career path based around social media. One of our assignments is to start a blog in which we will be required to post in at least twice a week for the rest of the semester.
I think I'll take this opportunity to delve a little deeper into the areas of study that I haven't had courses in lately, specifically with my Gender Studies minor. While I'll still be focusing on communications, it'll be a good way to challenge myself to encompass all of my academic interests. For instance, instead of just blogging about sexual politics, I could blog about how people are using social media to communicate about sexual politics and the ways in which the messages are interpreted via CMC.
Anyway, this is the first post of many. All of the posts for the course will be tagged with #cmm290.
Here we go!
