HistorioGRAPHICS. Framing the Past in Comics

Opening hours / Beginning:

15 June 2023 - 17 June 2023


Amerikahaus Munich and NS Documentation Center Munich Karolinenplatz 3 80333 München

“HistorioGRAPHICS: Framing the Past in Comics” sets out to critically assess the current state of research on graphic narrative as means of writing – and drawing – history and of examining, representing, and engaging with the past. The comprehensive conference program promises to generate fruitful insights for the transdisciplinary discourses on comics as part of public and academic history. We aim to facilitate exchange among researchers, artists, and educators.

In 22 panels on a range of topics, from Indigenous history and representations of the Holocaust to legal history, legacies of colonialism, and many more, as well as the keynote lecture by Professor Hillary L. Chute (Northeastern University, Boston) and a podium conversation with artist Barbara Yelin (Munich) and Professor Charlotte Schallié (University of Victoria) the international line-up of scholars will discuss historioGRAPHICS from multiple disciplinary and professional perspectives.

Supported by the DFG, the Bayrische Amerika-Akademie, the Gesellschaft für Comicforschung, and the City of Munich.

Participation is free of charge. Prior registration is requested. For more information, please visit the event website.
