ENGL 300: The Graphic Novel George Mason University (Spring 2011)

Final Project

The final project is an approximately 1,250 word (5-7 page) essay about a graphic narrative of your choosing. Your essay should offer insight and analysis based in the concepts, critical issues, and analytical approaches discussed in class. Although research is not strictly required, you may incorporate ideas from our secondary readings, or from secondary readings you discover on your own.

The possibilities are endless for your project. What your work boils down to is this: analyze a graphic narrative, exploring how the unique visual grammar of the medium contributes to the underlying themes of the work.

You should format your essay and works cited according to MLA rules. You should also scan relevant images from the text you're studying, and turn them in with the essay. It is due Thursday, May 12, via Blackboard.
