Fall 2017 Undergraduate English Courses: Theories and Methods
359:360 Theories of Text and Image
01 TTH5 CAC 21273 DIENST SC-116
This course will explore the field of media theory, especially as it has developed in dialogue with literary and cultural studies. The archive of media theory is already too vast to be easily summarized or anthologized; instead, we will use an array of texts and artifacts to develop a working knowledge of the field. At the same time, we will develop our own media practices, using blogs, short videos, and visual essays to experiment with various media forms. This practice will culminate in a final research project involving both verbal and visual components.
