ENGLĀ 367. Media Literacy. 3 Hours.

In order to address the increasingly visual and digital demands of our culture and the citizen it produces, this course will explicitly deal with the dissemination of information and culture via different forms of popular media. Based on the idea that everything produced by our culture is readable text, students will read and produce both traditional and non-traditional texts in a variety of media. Students will also explore how different media changes, how we process information and the impact they have on important concepts such as identity, self, culture, community, authority, and argument.
