Studies in Word and Image

From illuminated manuscripts to graphic novels, words have always been accompanied by images that combine aesthetic design with intellectual expressiveness. This course examines the ways in which visual/verbal relations have changed in different times and places, and interrogates the complex inter-relationships of technology, style, form, and culture. Topics vary but may include illumination, emblems, chapbooks, illustrated magazines and periodicals, illustrated books, picture books, graphic novels, comics, and hypertext.
