Posted on: Thursday, August 22, 2013 - 2:47pm

Still searching for a class in Fall 2013? Consider taking LIBR 320: Literacy through Graphic Novels! This three-credit general undergraduate course begins with a working definition of 'graphic novels,' 'comics vs. comix,' and more, and then provides a history of these unique texts before moving on to in-depth analysis.

Grounded in the theory of multiple literacies, the class is designed to give students a unique lens on cultural identity, information organization and dissemination, and visual literacy.  Furthermore, students will investigate the impact of cultural narratives upon information creation, ownership and dissemination. Course is open to all Western students.Questions?
