Comics on Color, Crips, Queers, and Other Idiosyncrasies

A panel of speakers provide an introduction to and overview of how comics have addressed issues of difference and inclusion in works from both mainstream and independent publishing venues, and ways in which inclusion in comics can make a difference in people's lives. The genre of comics and graphic narratives in America were born on the fringes of literary endeavors, and as such have served as a space where normative identities and their boundaries have been enforced, explored, and expanded.

Public Philosophy Reading Group: The Wretched of the Earth

Join us for a lively discussion of Franz Fanon’s "The Wretched of the Earth" (1961) and its meaning for our contemporary context. The Wretched of the Earth is Fanon’s classic analysis of colonialism and revolution. In it, Fanon argues that violence must play a role in the struggle, and that only by understanding and rebuilding the colonized mind can decolonization be truly accomplished. This first discussion will be about chapter 1, on violence. Subsequent discussions about the book will be on October 18th and November 8th, 7-9 p.m. in the Hatcher Gallery.
