Welcome of CI5472--a course that's addressing ways of teaching critical response to both traditional (film, TV, newspapers, radio, etc.,) and new media (blogs, social networking, YouTube, etc.). This course operates as a sort of media lab in which we bring in media texts for critical analysis. We also devote time for producing media texts, through which you learn about critical analysis of texts.
