Objectives of the Course
In this course, students will be inspired to think deeper onto the act of reading and the various processes that it is surrounded with. The goal is to give students insight on such positions such as reader and author, on the nature of text and on the impact that our personal experiences have as we interact with texts in the process of signification. Is there something like a “good” or ideal reader? If yes, who is it?
