Primary Instructor:

How does a caption or a title influence how we look at a painting or a photograph? How do the typography and the layout of a text affect how we read the words? Drawing on examples from literature, comics, visual arts, and photojournalism, this course will lead us through a variety of reading and writing assignments that focus on the interaction of text and image. We will consider graphic novels, posters, photos, and typographic poems from different cultures and literary traditions around the world: Maus by Art Spiegelman; Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi; A Humument by Tom Phillips; City of Glass by Paul Auster, David Mazzucchelli, and Paul Karasik.

Course Requirements:

In addition to fulfilling short writing assignments, you will write four analytical essays, or three essays and a creative final assignment with a 2-page critical presentation and reflection. In-class assignments include presenting on assigned readings and leading discussions.
