ENG 2360 - Comics and Graphic Novels



Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s) or Corequisite(s): ENG 1020 or ENG 1021

Description: Students in the course examine the development of comics and the graphic novel, including the texts’ blend of verbal and visual languages. Students develop visual literacy, reflecting on how images and writing function in relation to one another. Students read, analyze, and write about comics and graphic novels, with an introduction to literary and pictorial theory and research specific to the genre. Students will read, analyze, and write about superhero comics (such as Marvels and Kingdom Come) and “memoir” graphic novels (such as Maus and Fun Home) to explore how comics and graphic novels shape and reflect the cultures and communities in which they were created.
