Wesleyan Master’s Project Readings and MPhil Talk


Join the Graduate Liberal Studies community for a special event celebrating the humanities. The event features MALS candidates Michael Felberbaum and Tom DeBeauchamp reading from their final projects in pursuit of their MALS degrees. After a short intermission, Matthew Bennett will give a talk from his MPhil thesis, “A Commentary on David Mazzucchelli’s Asterios Polyp.”

“Asterios Polyp” is a multivalent that requires multiple readings to fully understand the richness and complexity of David Mazzucchelli’s masterpiece. This commentary seeks to create a method and apparatus for reading Asterios Polyp. It offers a way of reading, a method; it also offers essays which facilitate an understanding of the novel; and it offers interpretations and analyses. On one level, it appeals to the reader in us, desperate for a way to come to grips with a work which by its very nature defies traditionally held beliefs about comics and what constitutes a novel. On another level, it serves as a way for teachers and students to gain insight and knowledge of the text through a deeper understanding of the content and context of the novel.
