Book Lovers Among Students (BLASt) Meeting

Book Lovers Among Students invite everyone to the next meeting of BLASt, the scholarly meeting group for American literature and culture. On 27 January in room 215 of the Faculty of English, dr Małgorzata Olsza will talk about "Comics and Graphic Novels in the Anthropocene."

We will discuss two contemporary graphic novels, Richard McGuire's Here (2014) and Joe Sacco's Paying the Land (2020), and look at the Anthropocene through the lenses of word and image, tracing the response of the medium of comics to the ongoing climate catastrophe.
