MDIA-101 – Media: Texts and Images
|Faculty:||Humanities & Soc Sc||Corequisites:||None|
|School:||English, Film, Theatre, Media||Restrictions:||None|
This course is an introduction to one branch of Media Studies scholarship: namely, the close analysis of texts. It introduces the kinds of visual media texts which you may encounter in Media Studies courses and the methods of close analysis generally associated with them. In addition, it asks what the text is and what its function is in the context of our day to day experience of the mediated world. How do we use media texts in order to understand who we are and how we live, and how do we become literate in the skills necessary to understand them? 100% internal assessment.
