ENGL 333 - The Graphic Novel (LS)

This course introduces students to the diversity of contemporary comics narrative represented by the graphic novel form, and to major elements of the history from which this contemporary practice has emerged. At the same time, this course considers the formal features common among this diversity of graphic novels, the opportunities and limitations afforded by sequential art, and the ways in which comics narrative engages critically with its cultural contexts. The instructor will both present and invite a variety of theoretical perspectives.
