Jewish Comics and Graphic Narrative

Traces the historical and aesthetic development of comics as a cultural form as deployed by Jewish writers and artists. Looks at the early days of the comics industry, Jewish oppression and racialization, the creation of the superhero, and the Jewish immigrant experience to examine how Jewish artists have utilized the narrative possibilities of comics as a hybrid medium with particular focus on the Holocaust, global diaspora, and Jewish-American identity. Meets the Equity and Power: EPUS requirement. (Not offered 2023-24).
