This course will provide students with an introduction to interpretive methods in the humanities and social
sciences. Students will learn to "read" texts and images while also becoming familiar with contemporary
thinking about interpretation, narrative, ethnography, and social construction. Among the methods we shall explore are: semiotics, hermeneutics, ordinary language philosophy, discourse analysis, psychoanalysis, subaltern studies, and Marxian analysis.

Course Requirements
Attendance is strongly encouraged. Participants should come to each seminar having read the assigned
texts and prepared to discuss them. Registered students will receive all course material (schedules, announcements, required reading, recommended reading, and assignments) through JPM think, our online education management portal. Each week, students are required to complete a short writing assignment.

Dates:
July 1st, 5th, 8th, 11th, 12th, 15th, 18th, 19th, 27th, and 28th, 2017
Weekdays: 6:30 - 8:30 PM
