This course examines the relationships of the literary and visual arts. Comparative study focuses upon various practices, critical theories, and social, historical, and philosophical concepts that cross-artistic boundaries and influence specific works of literature and/or visual arts. Class sessions include lecture, discussion, film, and slide presentations as well as group activities. Critical thinking is encouraged as students apply concepts to analysis of fiction, poetry, paintings and sculpture from Western and Non-Western cultures. One analytical research paper and several short class presentations are required. This course is team taught by English and art faculty. Credit may be earned for either ENGL 3310 or ART 3310, but not for both.
