English 1102 / Georgia Tech / AY 2015-2016

What are the unwritten rules about what literature, music, and art can be? And how do artists break those rules to create new possibilities for communication? In English 1102, we will explore the rule-breaking work of poets, fiction writers, filmmakers, visual artists, and musicians in the twentieth- and twenty-first-century. As we consider different strategies artists use to reimagine what art can be, we will also explore how artists communicate new ideas to their audiences in unconventional ways.

Selected artifacts from the course are displayed on this site. In the fall and spring semesters, students wrote manifestos, made group infographics, and created avant-garde projects.
