As our mediated world becomes more and more complicated with the convergence of new and expanding technologies, it is imperative that we are prepared with the crucial and critical tools in order to understand the media saturated culture in which we reside. In addition to approaching popular cultural texts from a Mass Communication perspective, we will also explore ways in which Organization Communication, Interpersonal Communication, and Rhetoric are both present and influenced by our convergence culture.
