Module recap: Critical Media Practice

In October and November, GMM students undertook the Critical Media Practice module.

Module description
This module will introduce you to the creative practices, technical skills and conceptual frameworks required to produce critical media projects in a range of media (for example, video, photography, web) in a digital environment. It will explore the ways in which contemporary media production, participation and consumption are shaped by their historical, technological and everyday contexts.
