ENG 3310 Reading Everyday Life

MW 1:30-2:55, Dr. Andrew Opitz

This course examines how texts, people and relationships encountered in daily life shape our consciousness and direct us to accept social arrangements involving work routines, gender roles, technology and interactions with other people and other cultures. It is based on the premise that cultural life involves constantly “reading” and interpreting the world around us—a world of advertising, literature, visual art, music, media messages, body language and dress codes. Students will learn to critically analyze this rich world of meaning by reading both primary source material and relevant works of cultural theory, rhetoric, literary studies and media studies. Specifically, we will explore the rules of the workday, modern shopping/advertising practices, automobile cultures and our everyday interactions with communication and social networking technologies.
