ENGL150 PO - Visual Poetics: Exploring the Kinship Between Poetry and Art

When Offered: Fall 2020.
Instructor(s): P. Sharma
Credit: 1

This course will explore the rich and overlapping ways to read poetry and examine visual, performative, intermedial, artist’s and textual poetics. We will examine how the term poetics derives from “poiesis”, or “active making,” and how both poetry writing and art making create textual and visual phenomenon. We will read 20th and 21st century poetry; we will discuss art works, installations, social practice and community-oriented public work. We will also write poetry, create artist books, visit our local galleries and museums, and meet with poets and artists who collaborate on art projects that push the boundaries of art and text. Prerequisites: either one of ENGL 064A PO , ENGL 064B PO , ENGL 064C PO , ENGL 064D PO , ENGL 183A PO , or ENGL 183B PO .
