Overview

Synopsis
As information keeps over-flooding our screens and daily lives, the need to read and write the Web with a critical eye and responsibility has become more essential than ever before. The ways in which the new (social) media frame reality and communication need, therefore, to be unpacked. Toward this end, the course comes to explore Web-based authorship and readership and offer ways to measure the credibility of media texts, using metaphors and narratives as tools and methods of analysis.

Target students
International students at doctoral or Master’s level from the educational sciences, the social sciences, the media and communication studies who are interested to integrate multiple modalities and the affordances of representation into their studies and work.
