At the end of the course, the students should be able to analyse certain types of interaction between the fields of art and literature.
The course will rely on the history of the relations between literatures and plastic arts. Beyond the transfers from one art into the other, we will examine the many historical and thematic intersections between the two creative fields, as well as the aesthetical and philosophical foundations of these intersections. We will explore the different ways in which this dialogue between the arts is implemented : common genres (history, portrait, landscape'); reciprocal inclusions of image and text; free creations from one art with the tools of the other, etc. The methodology will be interdisciplinary, working at the crossroads of literature, art history, aesthetics, semiology, etc.
Assessment: oral examination and individual assignment.
Course materials: The literary works studied are in French. The course is given using PowerPoint materials. The information provided will appear on iCampus. Supervision: two teachers: an art historian and a French literature specialist.
