PICTUREBOOK AND GRAPHIC NARRATIVE

Picturebooks have been acclaimed as a unique form of literary and aesthetic creation characterized by the dynamic functions and negotiations between images and texts. Developed since the late 19th century and flourished in the mid-20th century onwards, picturebooks have become a specialized field for knowledge exploration and for addressing contemporary social issues and cultural ideas. This course will first deal with picturebook history and theory of graphic narrative, with a focus on the interactive communications, as well as contestations, between the visual and the verbal. It will then introduce significant picturebook authors and illustrators from Taiwan and English-speaking countries, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. Representative works of those picturebook authors and illustrators introduced in class will also be discussed.
