LIS 150 - Critical Writing Seminar: Concepts in Popular Culture


Intensive writing seminar focused on critical interpretation of cultural texts. Emphasis will be placed on the development of reading, writing, and thinking skills that reflect students’ ability to evaluate information and reason accordingly. Students will study a variety of cultural texts in an effort to broaden their frame of reference for academic inquiry and thereby facilitate their ability to transfer the reading, writing and thinking skills that they acquire. Cultural texts can range from reading assignments with a cultural focus to cultural artifacts, such as magazines, television programs, films, music, and art. Writing assignments will require students to decode these cultural texts while demonstrating proficiency with academic writing skills. These skills include knowledge of The Writing Process, conventions and documentation styles of various academic disciplines, and rhetorical modes. (3)
