Intertextual Perspectives - according to the 2015 HSC Syllabus rubric

  1. 1. Module A – Comparative Study of Texts and Contexts Elective 2: Intertextual Perspectives
  2. 2. What the syllabus says… • This module requires students to compare texts in order to explore them in relation to their contexts. It develops students’ understanding of the effects of context and questions of value. • Each elective in this module requires the study of groups of texts which are to be selected from a prescribed text list. These texts may be in different forms or media. • Students examine ways in which social, cultural and historical context influences aspects of texts, or the ways in which changes in context lead to changed values being reflected in texts. This includes study and use of the language of texts, consideration of purposes and audiences, and analysis of the content, values and attitudes conveyed through a range of readings. • Students develop a range of imaginative, interpretive and analytical compositions that relate to the comparative study of texts and context. These compositions may be realised in a variety of forms and media.
  3. 3. Elective 2: Intertextual Perspectives • In this elective, students compare the content and perspectives in a pair of texts in order to develop their understanding of the effects of context, purpose and audience on the shaping of meaning. • Through exploring and comparing perspectives offered by a pair of texts, students examine the ways in which particular social, cultural and historical contexts can influence the composer’s choice of language forms and features and the ideas, values and attitudes conveyed in each text. • In their responding and composing, students consider how the treatment of similar content in a pair of texts can heighten our understanding of the values, significance and context of both texts.
  4. 4. BOSTES definition of “intertextuality” Intertextuality: • The associations or connections between one text and other texts. • Parody and plagiarism are clear and extreme forms of intertextuality. • An overt reference to another text, as in a direct quote from another text, is another example of intertextuality. • More subtle forms of intertextuality include the intertextual use of iconic or well-known images (for example, an image of a sports star in an Australian tourism advertisement). • There are also intertextual connections that responders might make between texts, connections unintended by the composer; for example, a description of a seascape that conjures up a particular song or visual image in the mind of a responder.
