    MOVING IMAGE & SOUND LITERACY. CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES ON THE MEDIA ECOSYSTEM

    This course aims to teach students the strategies and tools to describe, analyze, handle, and critically interpret moving images that they may come across in everyday life. Our conception of literacy needs to expand beyond the traditional printed and spoken word: we can 'read' a TV newscast, a commercial, a music video, a short film, a movie or a TV series effortlessly, without being conscious of their many layers, and the subtlety, sophistication and density of the language. Being discerning about this and fully understanding and enjoying it is the main goal of this course, neatly expressed in the 3 C´s of Media literacy: the cultural, the critical and the creative. Language of instruction: English.

    Schedule: Monday to Friday, 12:00 a 14:00

    Total: 60h (45h contact + 15 asynchronous online hours) - 6 ECTS credits
