|Reflecting the ubiquity of visual text in contemporary life, this module seeks to explore the various
ways in which such a cultural phenomenon can be approached. It will seek to analyse texts such as
film, advertisement, music clips and wedding videos from a number of perspectives with the help of a
variety of theories centred on Cultural Studies, such as encoding/decoding, theories of space as well
as other theories of the visual text such as Semiology, Reception Theories, Psychoanalysis,
Feminism, Queer theory, Marxism, etc... Taking into account the Mauritian context, the module will
seek to explore visual text from as wide a variety of cultural nexus as possible.
