COLT 1: Read the World

Do you know how to read?  Faces. Words. Pictures. Bodies. Games. Books. People.  What are you really doing when you read the world?  This course teaches comparative methods designed to confront the (mis)understandings and (mis)translations that constitute reading across the world's languages, locations, cultures, historical periods, and expressive forms. Classwork consists of hands-on exercises that engage ancient and modern myths and materials drawn from various media: text, movies, video games, anime, and digital arts. (LIT/INT/CI)
