Description

This course seeks to exploit the communicative and interpretive potential of pictorial representations in German comics, cartoons, illustrated texts, and graphic novels. We will examine some of the most famous illustrated texts of the 19th century, numerous political cartoons and caricatures since the Wilhelmine era, popular German comic books and comic strips of the 20th century, and several German graphic novels. Because this course centers on a hybrid medium, a primary goal of this course is to promote greater competence in analyzing both visual and textual narratives.

Course Requirements:

No drawing skills or prior experience with comics required. Grades based on attendance and participation (25%), homework: daily reading and writing/journaling, vocabulary and grammar exercises (25%), 3 essays + 1 project + 1 presentation (30%), quizzes (20%).
