Have you ever read a review of a comic or graphic novel on a website and felt like you were only reading a book report?

Since its publication in 1909, Gertrude Stein’s Three Lives has been, unlike much of Stein’s other works, the object of academic interest and artistic commentary, appropriation, and criticism. Stein herself more than once complained about people continually wishing her to write “another ‘Melanctha,’” while others have judged this work as everything from an ideological racist screed to the most sensitive and sympathetic portrait of an African American woman of its time. This panel seeks to encourage new critical perspectives on what remains Stein’s most popular and widely read and studied work of shorter fiction.
