ENG 402

Comics

The Comics medium is notable both for the way it employs a sophisticated "visual vocabulary", and for how the interplay between text and image allows for the presentation of time and space in unique ways. Students explore how comics challenge the conventions of narrative and artistic medium, and how the term "graphic novel" itself has sparked a contentious debate about their positioning relative to the distinction between "high" and "low" culture.
