Democracy is so overrated.
The Netflix Original Series House of Cards took the world by storm in its online debut. Binge watchers across the country fell in love with the suspense, intrigue, and scandal presented by this fictional government. We dare to take it further, and hope that you will join us in our campaign.
This class will examine House of Cards from a political science and media perspective. We will discuss underlying themes, power, and media tools used by the series. Students will be reading each week, and watching selected clips from the series.
NOTE: DUE TO NETFLIX COPYRIGHTS, STUDENTS MUST HAVE ACCESS TO HOUSE OF CARDS. I mean, who wants to take a class about a show without watching the show, right?
Attendance and participation will be a large part of this class. Students will have 2 papers through the semester to complete, as well as a short presentation during one week of their choice. Please refer to the syllabus for more information.
Are you ready for #Underwood2016? We are.
