Space & Place in the Graphic
The graphic novel is an increasingly popular genre combining art and written work used by journalists, fiction and nonfiction writers, artists, and academics. This genre presents new and exciting ways of understanding and representing space and place, concepts at the heart of human geography. In this course we will read graphic novels by Joe Sacco, Marjane Satrapi, and Art Spiegelman, among others. We will also read key texts from human geographers: Doreen Massey, Gillian Rose, David Harvey and Tuan Yi-Fu. Students will practice visual analysis, maintain reading journals, write critical reviews, and create mini graphic novels exploring space and place.
