About this Unit
Students doing social semiotics will learn a variety of skills in social and textual analysis. These skills are vital to an understanding of communication, society, and culture. The unit will offer insights into the history of the rise of semiotics, especially from the work of Roland Barthes onwards. The unit combines theory with practice in analysing and producing text in a variety of media. It also looks at the contexts of textual production, ranging from general examples to issues of multicultural and postcolonial social analysis.
