Of course, you'll learn to read critically and to apply a range of theoretical perspectives - from structuralism and post-modernism to feminism and post-colonialism. But you'll also study literature's visual language: film, television series, comics, illustrations, and more. 19th Century novels were often illustrated and Game of Thrones fans have undoubtedly read the books and watched the HBO series - and the one inevitably impacts the other. -
