For Thursday (8/31)

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!
