HUM 202 - Self-Publishing, DIY Broadcasting, and Trans of Pop Media


The successes of self-published artists working in fringe genres and forms, as well as marginalized creators whose perspectives were not often welcomed by traditional media, has pushed traditional media to recognize and serve new audiences and creators; for instance, many of todays top YA and childrens comics creators (Raina Telgemeier, Gene Luen Yang, Faith Erin Hicks) began their careers self-publishing webcomics in the mid-00s. This course will explore the expansion of self-published media, focusing on comics, podcasting, and prose fiction, looking at how self-publishers in these areas have influenced mass media, and introducing the tools and practical skills that will allow students to begin self-publishing their own work.
