     Representing Dissent:

     Political Movements and Graphic Narrative

           Molly Crabapple, Jonathan W. Gray, Peter Kuper


       The Skylight Room (9100)

Has the successful transmission of images become essential to engaging in and sustaining dissent? In our mediatized world, issues of visual representation lie increasingly at the center of the social movements. Join illustrators Peter Kuper and Molly Crabapple in discussion with comic-book scholar Jonathan W. Gray about the politics of representing dissent from Oaxaca to Greece to Occupy to the Gaza Strip.


Cosponsored by the Center for Place, Culture and Politics.
