Drawing Disability, Framing Activism: Comics and Graphic Narratives for Interdisciplinary Teaching and Research

Tuesday, September 14, 2021

Join this webinar to hear literature and disability studies scholar Crystal Yin Lie offer an introduction to graphic narratives as academic resources, focusing on their utility for framing urgent discussions around topics such as bearing witness to trauma, social injustice, and identity politics. Dr. Lie will draw from her areas of specialization (disability studies/health humanities/contemporary literature and life writing) to demonstrate how the comic medium uniquely—and critically—reframes narratives of disability, illness, and health.
