Literature and the Visual Arts

This course examines the relationship 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, and 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. The course is team-taught by faculty from the English and the art disciplines. Credit may be earned for either ENGL 3310 or ART 3310 but not for both. This course is cross listed with ART 3310. Successful completion of ART 1310 and ENGL 2310 is highly recommended.
