This course is based on the theory that metaphors are a significant feature of language, that they inform our lives, and inform us about our lives. An analysis of metaphors, particularly those of social and cultural dominance tell us a great deal about ourselves. Our objective in this course is to explore, investigate and analyze our culture through metaphors. To accomplish our objectives, we will use a variety of texts and social and cultural sites that can be read as texts (scholarship, literature, advertisements, pictures, film, conversations, art, etc.) to accomplish our objectives. It is important that you understand that this class leans heavily toward the study of culture and away from the study of literature, although we will approach literature. Note: Course will be canceled if there are fewer than six (6) paid students enrolled as of Friday, December 15.
