PopMatters reviews Syllabus

“'Syllabus' Explores the Unconscious Mind in a Composition Book” / PopMatters / Scott D. Elingburg / January 5, 2015

Lynda Barry might call herself an accidental professor in the title of her graphic syllabus, but she’s clearly just being modest. Whatever Barry didn’t know before being a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, she made up for in sheer talent and creative thought. An unusual and unorthodox book that refuses to fit squarely into any category (is it a syllabus? graphic novel? memoir?), Syllabus: Notes From an Accidental Professor, is a talent-filled examination of how the arts and humanities can provide relevant and powerful thought within the university setting.
