For Thursday, read the excerpt from Daniel Chandler’s Semiotics for Beginners. This piece contextualizes Saussure’s work a bit more broadly and deeply.
After you’ve read Chandler on semiotics, take a look at the Jason Derulo video I posted on Tuesday and the Duran Duran video above. How would you read these videos “semiotically”?
Finally, if you need a refresher on Saussure, check out Gabriel’s excellent notes, posted to our class wiki.
See you soon!
