Leader: Chris Worth

Clayton First semester 2003 (Day)

Synopsis: 'Text and Context' is concerned with the ways in which human beings communicate with the verbal and non-verbal texts that we produce, with the contexts that shape those texts and with the processes by which we make texts meaningful. Many of the examples we will use are literary: these include Orwell's 1984, Ibsen's play Ghosts and Beckett's Endgame as well as some poetry. We will also use some nonliterary texts, oral and visual texts and a film.
