62336-01 - Seminar: Posts, submissions, comments: English texts in an online multimodal context 3 KP

Semester Herbstsemester 2021
Angebotsmuster einmalig
Dozierende Thomas Messerli (thomas.messerli@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt The internet more generally and social media more specifically have given rise to participatory culture, to novel forms of collaborative undertaking, to joint action between spatially and temporally distant participants. These linguistic actions are not least of all mediated through a range of different comparatively short written texts, such as tweets, posts on Facebook and Instagram, submissions and comments on Reddit, or timed comments on Viki, to name but a few examples. In this seminar, we will approach those texts from a linguistic perspective, theorise the practices that the texts and more broadly the affordances provided by different online platforms give rise to, and apply our insights to short examples. In particular, we will use methods and theories of conversation analysis, discourse analysis and pragmatics to understand the narratives that these texts tell, the way in which their authors construct individual and group identities through them, and the co-construction and negotiation of meaning that the recipients of those texts employ. Apart from their basic knowledge in linguistics, participants in the course are encouraged to bring to the course their own expertise as users of social media as well as their own excerpts of data. This, and the analysis of data more generally, requires an ethically conscious and informed position, and we will therefore start our exploration with a session specifically dedicated to research ethics.
Lernziele By the end of the course, students will have worked with broadly discourse analytic and pragmatic theories on one specific type of data (short online texts). They will have gained a deepened understanding of the text types that are part of the umbrella term in the title of the seminar, of some methodologies that can be applied to them, and of important theorisations and empirical studies on the topic. Students will have applied their knowledge to a range of different data - some of which provided in the course, some of it collected by the participants themselves, and they will have reflected on what constitutes ethically sound research practice in this field.
Literatur All obligatory reading for the course will be made available on ADAM.
