Animals in Graphic Narrative

José Alaniz, instructor

T/Th 10:30-12:20

 

This course examines the representation of animals in comics, in particular how comics authors use hybrid verbal-visual techniques to represent animal experience, perception and subjectivity. In the process, we will touch on such issues as the ethics of animal representation, applying concepts from the emerging field of Critical Animal Studies to graphic narrative. Readings include the works of Nick Abadzis, Sue Coe, Grant Morrison/Frank Quitely and Stephen Murphy/Michael Zulli.
