Instructor: Andrew Lesk
Jackman Humanities Building, TBDEmail: firstname.lastname@example.orgBrief Description of Course:
Many Canadian graphic novels and comics are based on what might loosely be termed "the outsider" trope. Often rooted (perhaps unsurprisingly, though not exclusively) in autobiographical narratives, these works suggest not only the artist?s engagement with the liminal and the transgressive but also how their outsider bearing reflects and reflects upon the larger national psyche. The heterogeneity of the works we are studying in this seminar-based course offers unique (if not necessarily nationalist or nation-based) perspectives on art and the role of the artist.Required Reading:
