RHET 159 - (LT) Rhetoric of Comic Books

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course looks at comic books as a literary form, with its own sense of genre and rhetoric. The course focuses on three elements of comic books: as a graphic novel genre and with its own literary traditions; as a communication phenomenon exploring visual rhetoric; and how identity is expressed, understood and inhabited in comics. American comic books and Japanese manga are central to this course. Special emphasis will be given to understanding comic books and its adaptations through cultural studies and critical theory.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
May not be taken on a Pass/D+/D/Fail basis.
