Understanding Refugee/Asylum Seeker Narratives Through Webcomics

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description

This lecture considers how the drawn and digital elements of the hybrid form of webcomics contribute particular perspectives and knowledge around asylum seeking in Australia. How does access to digital tools of production and distribution open up new spaces? How might webcomics disrupt the material experience of reading? To what extent can webcomics show us experiences previously hidden or invisible?
