Text and Image will both expose students to an important literary work that is central to our cultural heritage and require that they respond to the text in a visual interpretation. How a sequential narrative can be translated into a still image, how a text from a different historical period can be re-imagined in a contemporary manner, the varieties for of such re-imaginings will be issues explored in theory, through historical examples and in practice. This course will also investigates the critical and illustrative traditions of a major text or set of texts (the subject of the course can change from year to year), using techniques of art history and literary criticism.
