The course aims at developing the ability to analyze and produce a journalistic piece in its different forms, be it a written text (print / on-line version) or a broadcast piece. The students will be shown how to identify and reproduce the stylistic and textual features of journalistic texts, bearing in mind the cultural-ideological background against which a report, a feature or a commentary is set.
During the course, journalistic texts in languages other than English will be discussed as well.
