This seminar explores various ways that words and images combine to make meanings. You will study a range of word-image texts, from illuminated books and graphic narratives, to digital poetry and blogs. You will write critical papers about these image-texts, and you'll create your own. The seminar is a double hybrid--word/image texts and critical/creative writing--designed to stimulate your intellectual and imaginative faculties, and to help you develop literacies for the digital age, including mastery of WordPress. No previous technological training required.
