EUROPEAN ART STUDIES

AILIANA MARTINI - Undergraduate - (A-)
History Department, Ionian University

This course will be an overview of artistic activity in the Ionian Islands and the post-revolutionary Greece, with particular emphasis on painting. The course aims to familiarize the student with a cultural sector of our country that is often overlooked and help him to understand the way in which the modern Greek artists express their own identity through their work and convey to their audience.

Communication via the Internet

Andreas Giannakoulopoulos - Undergraduate - (A-)
DEPARTMENT OF AUDIO & VISUAL ARTS, Ionian University

The development of the Internet and its extensive use in everyday life have formulated new types of communication and expression, influencing a wider spectrum of contemporary humans’ activities. The World Wide Web, as a form of realisation of the semantic conception of the hyper-text, constitutes a place of dynamic and multilevel developments, the study of which requires an interdisciplinary approach, as it is proved by the rapid expansion of the emerging Web Science. Issues such as free access to content, new forms of inequality, the boundaries between public and private sphere, economy knowledge, Information Society, and, to a greater extend, the Internet effects on traditional mass media, together with the production and diffusion of content, constitute the interdisciplinary subject of Internet Communication. The central drift in approaching this phenomenon is a combined study of the Medium prevalent technological characteristics and the impact of its use on social relationships, the economy, interpersonal communication and mass media.
