Spring 2015 is almost upon us! English 333: Comics and Graphic Novels begins again next Wednesday, Jan. 21. I'm busily prepping the class's schedule and Moodle site, and eagerly anticipating our first meeting. In the meantime, I've updated the informational page on 333 to reflect what will be happening this semester, and have included links to sub-pages that explain, in detail, the textbooks and requirements for the class. If you read carefully, you'll find out something about the history of the course, its aims and rationale, and its place in the world of comics studies, as well as something about my (Prof. Hatfield's) background. Note that there's even a PDF of the syllabus that you can print out and read ahead of time!
Students, I'm looking forward to meeting you and to our shared work together this term. Shazam!
I'm busily prepping for my Spring 2015 course, English 495SH: The Comic Book Superhero, which starts next Wednesday, Jan. 21, and will go to mid-May. This senior seminar covers the superhero in several media, but particularly in the genre's medium of origin, the US comic book. I've just updated the course's informational page (see the link to ENGL 495SH in the banner above?) to include updated links re: requirements and textbooks. Dig a little deeper there and you'll find a link to a page about how to blog for the course (because everyone in class will be blogging).
Over the next couple of weeks, as the class gets rolling and we all start to get acquainted, you'll see quite a few student blogs linked to the ENGL 495SH page, which will become our class hub for the duration.
Students in 495SH, I urge you to pore over the information here and get an advance feel for our class. Of course a lot of this info will be recapped in class and on our private Moodle site. See you soon—looking forward to it!
