February 9-11: Racial Reckoning through Comics
Thursday, February 9, 2023 - 6:30pm to Saturday, February 11, 2023 - 6:00pm
Iowa City Public Library/UI Obermann Center

For the next "Racial Reckoning Through Comics" event, we will engage in conversation with artists MariNaomi and Joe Sacco as well as scholars Candida Rifkind, Jorge Santos, and José Alaniz to discuss how colonial dynamics are involved in racialization processes. From the global to the local, from international conflicts to the everyday life in times of peace, our artists’ stories and our scholars’ analyses will explore how the grammar of comics can imagine, write, and draw anti-racist and anti-colonial representations as a challenge to contexts of racial oppression. Join us in person or live! Schedule and details: https://race-and-comics.sites.uiowa.edu/schedule
