Over the past decade, there has been an explosion of “graphic novels” concerning Jewish society, history, and religion. This course explores the history of comics through the lens of its Jewish creators and Jewish themes. We learn to interpret this complex art form that combines words and hand-drawn images and translates temporal progression into a spatial form. Reading primarily American, but also European and Israeli graphic novels, our discussions focus on fictional and autobiographical narratives of immigration, conflict, and loss.
