ENGL 214 - Image and Enlightenment

FC ARHU
4 credits
Image and Enlightenment explores the centrality of images for the eighteenth-century cultural project known as the Enlightenment. We examine physically embodied images that circulated in eighteenth-century print culture as illustrations in philosophical treatises, scientific voyages of discovery, and the novel. We also study theories of the image as developed in Enlightenment debates about the nature of the imagination. Students in this course will examine Enlightenment images, material and immaterial, across genres, from the Encyclopedie, to the illustrated novel, to landscape treatises. Labs in Mudd Special Collections afford hands-on knowledge of the variety and uses of images in the Enlightenment. 1700-1900.
