This is a theoretical, critical, and practical course in print, taught collaboratively by Patricia Fumerton, Department of English, and Harry Reese, Department of Art and Co-Director of Book Arts, CCS. It moves from a short theory and history of print to focus on the practical making of print, from papermaking, to engaging with different typefaces, and setting and printing type. In the second half of the course, students will print a page from an author or genre that is of special interest to their field of study and write a critical paper (6-10 pp.) about how their experience in making their printed artifact produces and interacts with interpretation of the author/field they are focusing on. All students will also participate in a last day display and critique of their made artifact. This course is part of the “maker” movement in the humanities.
Admission to the course is by permission of the instructors. The course will be limited to 6 English and Art graduate students and 6 undergraduates, with priority given to CCS undergrads and then English. Total maximum enrollment for the course: 12 students. Graduate students may apply to the Graduate Committee to have the course count toward the fulfillment of whatever field they focus on in their special project.
