POPULAR CULTURE AND MEDIA COMMUNICATION

This class provides an introduction to one of the most productive genres created at the intersection of literary and popular culture: the graphic memoir. The class explores case studies from both American and British graphic memoirs as it attempts to answer questions about how the particular visual-verbal vocabulary of graphic narratives can help us reflect on issues such as the complexity of self-representation, the representation of trauma, the ethics of storytelling, and the unreliability of memory.

Course instructor: Dr Mihaela Precup
