Spring: CHID 270C Graphic Novels & Jewish Memory

Explore the graphic novel as a medium for personal and collective memory making. Ask questions about how visual narratives help tell stories and preserve memories.

The course uses Jewish-authored graphic novels – from Art Spiegelman’s Maus to Vanessa Davis’ Make Me a Woman – to offer a specific focus and context for the history of the art form and universal themes about memory, trauma and belonging.

Guest artists will also visit the class.

3 credits I&S. Meets Wednesdays, 2:30-5:20 p.m.
