COLT 10.17 Reading the Francophone World through Comics

Do we read comics differently from other genres? In this course, we will learn how to quite literally read comics (text image), but also acquire the tools to interpret them using different critical approaches (psychoanalytical, feminist, post-colonial).

The artistic and creative impact of Francophone comics or bande dessinée (Hergé, Sfar) has raised the genre to a higher cultural status, in its deployment of new storytelling strategies (David B.) as well as its embrace of controversial subjects (Maroh). 

Distributive and/or World Culture

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
