With graphic novels, sequential art, comic books becoming more prevalent in scholarship and education, the need for interdisciplinary conversation grows so that we might collaboratively imagine the future of the graphic narrative. How does this literacy provide new avenues for understanding cultures? How do we incorporate visual narrative texts into the classroom?

Event will be held in the UCSB Theater & Dance Building: Courtyard & Room 1530. Sponsored by the Dept. of Art, College of Creative Studies, the Dept. of Theater & Dance, the UCSB Arts Library, the Writing Program and the IHC.
