Reading Comics and Graphic Literature in a Time of Environmental Crisis

April 25, 2018, 11:30 AM

Free

What role can comics and other forms of literary-visual art play in our conversations about the environment? This talk by Thomas Doran, assistant professor, Rhode Island School of Design, explores how comics-art functions as a unique medium for telling stories about how humans and other animals relate to their environments, focusing especially on the form’s capacity for representing time, space, and inter-species consciousness. Doran also discusses the role artists play in expanding our understanding of the cultural dimensions of environmental crisis.
