At the end of the course students are expected to be able:
- to understand how the perception of the world and of reality is always mediated by cognitive processes of cultural and social codification and communication; to remember how the main linguistic and conceptual categories with which we usually describe the complex contemporary reality inevitably reproduce culturally, socially and historically determined maps and frames; to recognize and identify possible frames proposed in everyday social communication.
- to apply concepts and tools learned in the analysis of frames and “concept maps” socially used.
- to be in a position to interpret, evaluate and criticize the frames emerging in social communication and public discussion with autonomy, reflexivity and rigor.
- to know how to communicate and compare ideas and opinions in a public debate, recognizing the complexity and legitimacy of different points of view, without renouncing one's own.
- be able to intervene and participate with more awareness and with more critical and reflective tools in the world of communication and contemporary media.
