|ENG 480 - Discourse and Power
This course examines the relationship between language and ideology through investigating the role of discourse as an instrument of power and control. Emphasis is placed on modern socio-political discourse using Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) as an analytic model. Both CDA’s theoretical underpinnings as well as its more useful practical aspects are covered with particular emphasis on Systemic Functional Grammar, conceptual metaphorical mapping, and generic framing as the most valuable analytical tools for uncovering hidden ideologies in texts.Prerequisite: ENG 102, ENG 213, and senior standing or consent of instructor.[3-0, 3 cr.].
