French 352. The Quill and the Brush

What do we mean by “word” or “image,” and what do we do with them individually or in combination? In this creative writing course, we investigate the relationship between word and image in graphic novels or medieval tapestries; we deconstruct advertisements, photographs and movies. Students’ work will take many forms, from surrealist “Cadavres Exquis” to poems, collages, short stories and short videos. Theoretical texts by Barthes, Sontag and Berger. This course is part of connection 23012 (Visualizing Information).
