Description

FRIDAY FEBRUARY 1ST
6-8 PM /// DFSR /// UCL ANTHROPOLOGY

Join us this Friday for the first UCL MAL event of 2019, an evening seminar and workshop on Graphic Anthropology led by Dana Walrath. The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception.

“Comics, an outsider, public, medium of fragments and simultaneity aligns beautifully with anthropological theory and mission. But only recently have they found a place of respect within the academy. This workshop will combine analysis of existing graphic anthropological texts with hands-on exercises in creating ethnographic comics and using comics as a tool for all phases of anthropological inquiry: from field work, to writer’s block, to graphic ethnography.” - Dana Walrath

Dana Walrath, a writer, artist, and anthropologist, likes to cross borders and disciplines with her work. Her graphic memoir, Aliceheimer’s (Penn State Press 2016) about life with her mother, Alice, before and during dementia, has been featured in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Review of Books, the Philadelphia Inquirer and on NPR. She has spoken extensively about the role of comics in healing throughout North America and Eurasia including two TEDx talks.
