MLL 301 - Textual Analysis: Words, Images, Music (3)


This course introduces techniques of analytical reading and reader response that apply to a broad range of texts, including verbal, visual, musical and multi-media, such as cinematic and electronic discourse. Students interact with various forms of communication from popular and high culture by examining their structural and stylistic/aesthetic properties; the cultural assumptions and values that they convey; and the texts' performative effects on emotions, action and thought. Emphasized are the properties of texts that make them effective, pleasing or dangerous and the social context of communication. Recommended Preparation: MLL 190 , MLL 191 , or another linguistics course.
