This course will focus on Korean boy group, BTS, and their global impact. We will attempt to explore the group’s history, artistry, philanthropy, and many other aspects in order to analyze their growing impact in society as well as their international success. Additionally, we will dive into the intricate world they have created through their album concepts and videos, also known as, “Bangtan Universe.” We will also look at media texts like articles, interviews, and the group’s own music videos to allow students to think critically and create their own theories about the group’s success.
In-class sessions will consist of lectures, screenings, and group discussions. Lectures will focus on introducing material, while the screenings will supplement the material.
Out-of-class assignments will consist of weekly reflections that require analyzing concepts discussed in class. Additionally, the readings due each week will aid in preparation for the following class.
Attendance is highly crucial as it is where most of the learning and discussions will take place and it is what the assignments are based upon. Participation depends on engagement in class and doing the readings.
Infosession will be on Tuesday, February 5th at 7pm in 107 Genetics and Plant Biology Building and IS MANDATORY if you are interested in taking the course.
No day(s) left until application deadline!
