Do you read Graphic Novels?

Take a course with Professor Hillary Chute in Fall 2017 to learn about Graphic Novels! 

ARTE 3901.02 - Special Topics: The Graphic Novel
CRN 18130 - Mon/Thurs 11:45 - 1:25 PM
Professor Hilary Chute

Explores the word-and-image relationship in a narrative form. Students learn how to read comics—and what they teach us about reading—in addition to the creative practices that go into making them. Students will examine antecedents including “engraved novels,” newspaper comic strips, “wordless novels,” underground comic books, and punk fanzines to understand the graphic novel’s rise in the 1970s, in addition to exploring current directions in production. Authors include Art Spiegelman, Alison Bechdel, Chris Ware, Joe Sacco, Lynda Barry, Gary Panter, Phoebe Gloeckner, Keiji Nakazawa, and Marjane Satrapi, among others. Will include visits from artists to discuss the craft of this verbal-visual form.
