Description of Activity
Gave a talk entitled 'Drawn to the Past: Comics and Historical Representation.' This talk explores the rich, vibrant world of historical comics and graphic novels. For some years now, the medium has received popular and scholarly attention for its ability to offer inventive, challenging and complex representations of the past. Discussing key publications and drawing on their own experiences creating graphic histories, Louis Netter and Olly Gruner reflect on the ways in which comics can engage with, and contribute to, wider debates on history and heritage.
