Analyze This!!! is an interdisciplinary topics course that investigates how we construct cultural meaning through our senses. How do we interpret what we hear, see, and read? Theoretical texts that explore different methods for analyzing sound, visual imagery, and written texts will provide the basis for the course. Using that theoretical base, students will analyze a variety of sounds, images, and texts, ranging from recordings of Miles Davis’s performances to episodes of the sci-fi television series Firefly. We will also attend, discuss, and write about campus events, performances, exhibitions, etc. If it involves sound, image, or text, we’ll analyze it!!!
