You are invited to join us on Tuesday morning for a special lecture from Dr. Dean Chan (Australia):


The Global Phenomena of Digital Gaming and Diasporic Communities: Graphic narratives, which include comic strips, graphic novels and webcomics, and range from manga to bande dessinée, are an increasingly diverse and dynamic part of global visual culture, especially as a medium for intercultural communication. This presentation brings Asian Canadian, Asian American and Asian Australian graphic narratives into dialogue and examines how they intersect and diverge, subject to differing histories of settlement, race relations and identity politics.

Hosted by Ashok Mathur & Will Garrett-Petts from the Faculty of Arts.

Tuesday February 7
Room 1015, IB
11:30am – 12:20pm.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Encourage your students to drop in and hear this international perspective on the phenomenon of graphic narratives.

Special thanks to Professor Terryl Atkins for opening up her Visual Culture class to our visiting guest speaker.
