This unit initially focuses upon a range of thematic areas such as youth, memory, surveillance, mediation and realities in which the emphasis is on our relationship to our environment and the way we choose to communicate within it. You will be required to present work through an auditory or visual medium, which highlights specific examples of communication within the areas we discuss.
Following on from this you are introduced to readings within a variety of contemporary subject areas intended to both inspire and focus you in thinking about and selecting possible topics for your dissertation in your final year.
Each week a specific text will be read and analysed. In small groups you will be asked to lead a week‟s discussion in relation to an allocated text. You will be asked to prepare topics for discussion and draw up proposals for suitable research areas.
