Pre-University Summer School Arts & Humanities (Module)

Module description

Learn all about the role of language in society worldwide.

Words have the power to shape the way we see the world, engage with other people and other times, and construct collective and individual identities. Through social media, global news and the arts we are in constant contact with many different people, cultures and ideas. How do we process all this information? What is filtered out and why? What are the untold stories? Whose voice is not being heard?

Through a variety of on-demand lectures, course activities and live seminars, you will develop a critical understanding of culture and language, and will apply essential digital and analytical methods to explore new ideas and express your own creative and critical voice.
