"THE POLITICS OF WEIRDNESS IN COMICS" (VLPA) THIS COURSE WILL TACKLE A NUMBER OF RECENT 'WEIRD' COMICS (AKA GRAPHIC NOVELS). WHILE WEIRDNESS IN COMICS IS NOTHING NEW, THESE WORKS ARE EXPLICIT IN THEIR EXPLORATION OF A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FORMAL EXPERIMENTATION AND CULTURAL DIFFERENCE AND, IN SOME CASES, RESISTANCE. OUR TIME WILL BE BALANCED BETWEEN CRITICAL READING AND DEBATE ABOUT THE ART AND MORE CREATIVE EXPERIMENTS AND EXERCISES INSPIRED BY OUR DISCUSSIONS. OFFERED VIA REMOTE LEARNING
