Courses » ENGL 290: Literature and the Visual Arts


In this course students will study the historically complex relationship between literature and the visual arts as it manifests itself in the works of literary and visual artists in Britain, North America and beyond. Students will study autonomous visual works inspired by texts, visual works intended to remain within a written text as visual companions to it, writers influenced by visual art traditions and theoretical positions, and authors who are both visual and literary artists and thus practioners of both “languages.”
