Picture Books - ENGL707

A broad aim of this unit is to survey the range of picture books produced for children and, in doing so, to examine the range of possible ways in which words and pictures can be combined to create narrative and to generate meaning. More specifically, it promotes students' research abilities by encouraging them to explore the different ways in which pictures and words represent reality, construct narrative and communicate ideology. The unit will also focus in detail on aspects such as textual layout and composition; visual and verbal point of view strategies; strategies for depicting time, space, movement and stasis; style; and genre.
