This unit will access in literary, philosophical, psychological, and visual texts, representations of 'moments', thought, behaviour and description that form the basis of story writing (visual and verbal narrative). The unit will be structured in the form of a quest on two levels. In the first instance students will learn how stories are made both verbally and visually. In the course of the unit the students will be analysing the ways in which writers and artists, for example, represent character, dialogue, landscape, action and inner states of being. In the second instance students will be given a scenario that takes the form of a journey which will involve their writing and visually representing their own narrative. The unit will focus on stratagems of artists, in relation to 'realist' and abstract representations, modernist discourse about art itself and post modernist discourse regarding reflexivity, ironic deployment of past genres and the provisional nature of knowledge.
A final narrative product: an illustrated text that invokes the imaginary journey 60%, Exegetical response to work produced (journals of research) 40%
