課程概述

This course serves as an introduction to looking at different styles of English writing via comic books/graphic novels. The class focuses on the graphic novel as cultural product and practice. Together, we will explore the ways in which meanings emerge in several graphic novels. We will interrogate the relationships between the concepts “graphic novel” or “comic book” and “popular culture,” with each of us bringing our lived experiences to our readings and discussions. Using contemporary global society as for context, we will see how critical studies of popular culture have a distinct place in the arts and humanities. We will consider the contradictory ways in which difference, power and knowledge are articulated in cultural production. Through in-depth studies of several primary texts, we will learn how graphic novelists use and manipulate historical and contemporary social issues as the building blocks for their art. The class will focus on graphic novels that look at different cultures.
