Art and Journalism

Spring 2021

Taught By: Anjali Khosla

Section: AX

CRN: 5731

Credits: 4

In this course, students will examine the complex relationship between art and journalism, learn to think critically and creatively about the marriage of reporting with form, and attempt to define the terms "fact" and "truth". In addition to close readings of fiction, nonfiction and theoretical texts, we shall study the work of comedians, filmmakers, data journalists, and visual artists--both in class and at galleries around the city. A number of artists and journalists will visit our class to discuss their philosophies and processes. Students will enrich their understanding of stylistic and ethical issues by pursuing their own exploratory acts of journalism in genres ranging from video to haiku. * Strongly recommended for Journalism + Design majors*
