Crash Course

Graphic Literature

Catherine Corder

ENGL 2303

Wonder Woman flies high, and students jump in to examine why. In Catherine Corder's "Graphic Literature" course, students examine visual narrative forms like print and web comics, graphic novels, and manga. While reading, they learn to analyze the literature for plot development, characterization, style, and significant themes related to gender, ethnicity, and social and cultural values. "Comics and graphic novels offer us a format for telling stories that is much more profound than many people realize," Dr. Corder says. "Analyzing the visual techniques and the ways in which they contribute to the overall narrative really demands some thoughtful observation and an appreciation of a multimodal approach to storytelling."
