Teaching Graphic Narratives

Graphic narratives offer a wide variety of doubles and doppelgängers. Secret superhero identities and Gothic doubles create unique possibilities for exploring the self, power, perception, and the potential for other realities, while graphic narrative adaptations of a literary work highlight other ways of seeing and interacting with a text. Graphic narratives encompass worlds beyond fiction as well, with graphic memoirs and textbooks in a wide range of fields from rhetoric to literary theory, history, and science.

Writing allows our students to consider multiple perspectives and take on a variety of different roles, from personal reflection to creative writing, rhetorical analysis, and professional discourses. This focus on writing roles and identities gives students the opportunity to explore and develop different parts of themselves, from self-reflection to becoming engaged citizens and mastering the skills they will need as professionals. Foregrounding the notion of duality and multiplicity in student writing opens the door to several different critical discourses in considering audience, purpose, and students’ engagement with multiple texts and argumentative positions central to their own research and writing.

Call for essay proposals on teaching comic texts

When comedy dominates popular culture so thoroughly that it’s difficult to distinguish spoofs from truths, when identities and relationships form and fumble on a foundation of comic memes, and when the powerful and the powerless wield comedy alternately as weapon or shield, it’s time for the academy to take comedy seriously. Teaching Comic Texts, edited by Bev Hogue, will examine how comic texts of many types can be deployed in classrooms, either as a topic of literary or cultural study or as a window into understanding other fields. In addition to exploring historical and theoretical contexts, essays in the volume will provide practical insights for teaching comic texts in a variety of disciplines.
