About the Course:

This is a course for Bat-beginners and Bat-veterans alike - all those interested in investigating Batman as American mythology and beyond. As no myth exists in a vacuum and Batman's myth is historic as well as modern and ongoing, we will often compare Batman to various real-life contexts and influences. We'll incorporate various visual elements as well, such as the animated episodes and movie screenings. Course content will encompass analyzing Batman cartoons/TV shows, movies, and comics, with special emphasis on a few pivotal graphic novels which will be required reading for the class.

The Facilitators: Liz returns for her fifth semester to educate malleable minds in the ways of the Bat, this time around joining forces with fresh faces Thomas and Blanca to form the ultimate crime-fighting (and bat-educating) trio! Batman will also pay us unannounced visits from time to time.
