Department: LSA Comparative Literature
Requirements & Distribution:
Waitlist Capacity:
May be repeated for a maximum of 9 credit(s). May be elected more than once in the same term.
Primary Instructor:

In different units through the semester, we will explore how various art forms, such as poetry, fiction, visual images, and film, respond to and represent historical events and human experiences. We will consider the aesthetic implications and possibilities of these different art forms and examine how they complement or challenge one another. We will also study the translation or adaptation of one form of art into another. In the process, we will familiarize ourselves with a range of basic literary and artistic concepts and movements. The goal is for us to appreciate both creative artwork and the complexity of human experiences.

Course Requirements:

Course evaluations will be based on active participation, regular attendance, timely submission of exercises such as Canvas discussions and small-scale research assignments, and the completion of a final project developed under the guidance of the instructor.
