Although we do not yet know how long the social distancing related to the Covid-19 pandemic will last, and regardless of the changes that had to be made in the evaluation of the June 2020 session in relation to what is provided for in this learning unit description, new learnig unit evaluation methods may still be adopted by the teachers; details of these methods have been - or will be - communicated to the students by the teachers, as soon as possible.
This biannual learning unit is not being organized in 2019-2020 !
Exploitation of the contributions of particular semiologies (verbal and visual).
Presentation and testing of the main relational models to analyse works mixing text and image.
Exercises in applied semiology (advertisement, comic books, illustrated press, etc.).

During the 20th century, written culture has been more and more associated with visual culture, whether in popular literary works (illustrated books for children, comic books, newspapers or magazines, advertisement, video clips, etc.) or in "high" literature (illustration, graphic and typographic visualisation, etc.).
The main goal of this course is to give to the students, who are bound to meet this mixing of languages (text+image) in their research or their professional life, a rigorous theoretical and methodological frame which makes possible the analysis of contemporary images and of their frequent interactions with various literary texts, popular or not.
The contribution of this Teaching Unit to the development and command of the skills and learning outcomes of the programme(s) can be accessed at the end of this sheet, in the section entitled “Programmes/courses offering this Teaching Unit”.
A critical synthesis of the main theories about the study of the relationship image-text (or about the study of one of these two modes, as far as this study can contribute to the final theoretical development) will be given to the students; it leads to the perfecting of methodological tools likely to be used to analyse the (popular) literary text and contemporary images. The locating, interpretation and confrontation of cultural, ideological and symbolic contents promoted by the textual and iconico-plastic forms will also be given special emphasis.
