What do we mean when we speak of visual essays? How can we develop academic arguments by using multi-medial material? This autumn Professor Richard Dienst (Rutgers) will return to the English Seminar to explore a wide spectrum of possibilities. The aim of this workshop, which will also include hands-on exercises, is to discuss the visual essay as a form of creative research and examine its pedagogical potential. One of the claims is that the visual essay can be seen as a promising – and, in fact, necessary – new direction in English Literature as a discipline which teaches students how to read and how to see.
