English 289. Word and Image

This course focuses on interrelations between creative writing and visual imagery. Following explorations of writers' responses to visual phenomena (including painting, sculpture, photography, artists' books, scientific imagery and other media) and artists' responses to language, you will have the opportunity to write about and to create multimedia pieces and to collaborate with others, both inside and outside the class. This course is designed primarily for creative writing students, but artists, musicians, dancers, filmmakers and others interested in multimedia projects incorporating texts are also encouraged to enroll.
