Words and Pictures, International Edition


This course, like its sister, uses graphic novels, poems, children’s books, and all kinds of other texts and arts to explore storytelling; but, in this case, the emphasis is on works from everywhere: ancient Egyptian love poems, a Malaysian graphic autobiography, memoir from Pakistan. Conference work, as in Words and Pictures, is open to all kinds of things, including quilts, animations, adult picture books…use your imagination. There will be weekly readings and exercises.
