Course Information

In this course you will explore the world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe by examining narrative schemas, character archetypes, intertextuality and links to mythology. You will delve into the far away worlds that your favourite Marvel heroes inhabit.

Don’t be fooled though – this course is not about sitting back with your popcorn and watching Thor. After this unit, you won’t be able to watch Ragnarok without dissecting the hidden meanings of symbols, stereotypes, gender roles, or film codes.

By the end of this unit, you will have an in-depth understanding of the way texts are interconnected, as well as the ways in which even modern texts draw on traditional narrative schemas. You will demonstrate this knowledge through a range of creative, analytical and interpretive assessments.
