Designed for well-qualified arts graduates (or those who have attained an equivalent level) This core component overall explores the complex relationship between textual and visual forms of apprehension and expression in the modern world and their impact on European culture post-1900. Topics looked at include graphic arts (poster, postage stamp, typography), cinema and contemporary digital-based media. Various theoretical approaches will be explored in relation to the word/image problematic as manifested in a number of European cultural traditions. Accompanying optional modules (two per semester) will focus on specific media (cinema, digital media) or themes (avant-gardes, postmodernism, semiotics). Interested?
