ENGL 53.17 The Graphic Novel

What happens when normally separate symbol systems like pictures and words converge? This course investigates that question by examining graphic novels and the theoretical insights they have elicited. Discussions will explore issues of autobiography, counterculture, parody, and fantasy. Typical authors include Art Spiegelman, Alan Moore, Chris Ware, Marjane Satrapi, Daniel Clowes, Alison Bechdel and several others. In addition to a presentation, students will write two formal essays and several short responses.

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.
