The Semiotics of Colour
Dr Laetitia Monbec
Colour is key in visual communication. In this course, students will engage with the topic from a social semiotics and multimodal perspective to explore how colour meanings, for example ideational, interpersonal and textual, are created and interpreted.
Students will develop a research paper around an artefact of their choice from fields such as marketing, design, visual and performing arts or their discipline, to examine how colour conveys meanings and/or how these colour meanings are perceived in the community. Through their project, students may explore a range of social issues related to, for example, gender and race.
We would like to encourage everyone who enjoyed using CAPT Courses (previously known as CAPTMods) to contribute back to the community by writing reviews for courses that you have taken before. Your efforts will go a long way in building up a vibrant and rich CAPT academic environment!
1. Because the experience of each course will differ according to the professor teaching the course, at the start of your review, please state the semester taken and the name of the professor who taught the course in that semester.
2. Other students will read your review to get an idea of what taking the course will be like and this may affect their course registration choices. As such, please maintain objectivity when leaving your review and take note that we will go through a moderation process before reviews get posted.
3. The experiences alleged in these reviews have not been verified by CAPT or CAPT Courses. Please take all anecdotes with a grain of salt.
