Outline of the seminar

Films and other visual works of art are forms of expression that convey multifaceted meanings, including linguistic, visual, auditory, physical, and spatial meanings; background of the time period, society, and culture; and the intentions of the people involved in the production. People read diverse meanings in videos, and new interpretations are created through dialogs about these interpretations. From this point of view, the presenter has been conducting face-to-face classes with videos, focusing on the learners’ “cultural translation.” If such classes were conducted online, what kind of class design and problems would be expected? In this seminar, we will explore this question through a demonstration of such an online class.
