The programme for the conference Graphic Details: Communities of Experience it out now. Organised by Sarah Lightman and me, it will take place on Wednesday, 12 November at JW3 in London. Click here for tickets and details about how to get there.
The conference is based on the first touring exhibition of comics and cartoons by contemporary Jewish women, whose autobiographical comics confront issues personal and global. The event brings together academics and some of the artists whose work is exhibited, thus offering a unique opportunity to discuss and explore the diverse body of works by Jewish women today.
Participating artists include Sarah Lightman, Miriam Katin, Diane Noomin, Corinne Pearlman, Ariel Schrag, Ilana Zeffren. Plus there will be a special Laydeez do Comics evening session featuring Nicola Streeten, Janis Goodman, Denise Torrance, and Sam Cowan!
Please spread the word! Looking forward to seeing many people comics lovers as well as those with an interest in autobiographical narratives and contemporary culture at the event.
