Description: This interdisciplinary course will explore the relationship between language, text, and the visual arts. The class will examine poet/artist collaborations, text-focused artistic movements such as Dada, Surrealism, and the early text-based works of the 1960s, along with contemporary artists and writers who push the boundaries of their fields. Field trips, readings, group discussions, and class critique will all be integral to this course. Students will develop projects, either through individual investigation or group collaboration, examining how words and images might intersect. The semester will culminate in a publication of these projects. This course has limited enrollment. The roster is formatted on the first day class by the instructor, who may allow additional registration for majors and underclassmen. It is necessary to attend the first class meeting to confirm your place on the class roster.
