GLITS 252/C LIT 252: GLOBAL COMICS

Though long associated with children’s literature, comics narratives aimed at adults (also known as tebeo, manga, komiks, fumetti and la bande dessinée, among other terms) have proliferated in the last few decades throughout the world. This course explores the international use of comics storytelling in the graphic novel, memoir and journalism, for how it reflects the artists/cultures which produced it and foregrounds the potential of the medium itself. It also serves as an introduction to the history of comics – with a decidedly global perspective! – focusing on the last 50 years. 
All readings in English.
