During this webinar, we will discuss how Islam and Muslims have been, and continue to be, portrayed in comics and other forms of sequential art from the 1800s through today. Focusing largely on US comics the discussion will also take into account global examples including, but not limited to, works from Canada, Spain, and various elements of the Punch “empire.”
Scholar: Maryanne Rhett (Professor of History and Anthropology, Monmouth University)
