Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A noted comics artist himself, Santiago García follows the history of the graphic novel from early nineteenth-century European sequential art, through the development of newspaper strips in the United States, to the development of the twentieth-century comic book and its subsequent crisis. He considers the aesthetic and entrepreneurial innovations that established the conditions for the rise of the graphic novel all over the world. García not only treats the formal components of the art, but also examines the cultural position of comics in various formats as a popular medium. Typically associated with children, often viewed as unedifying and even at times as a threat to moral character, comics art has come a long way. With such examples from around the world as Spain, France, Germany, and Japan, García illustrates how the graphic novel, with its increasingly global and aesthetically sophisticated profile, represents a new model for graphic narrative production that empowers authors and challenges longstanding social prejudices against comics and what they can achieve.

Download or read book Dreaming the Graphic Novel written by Paul Williams and published by Rutgers University Press. This book was released on 2020-01-17 with total page 222 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The term “graphic novel” was first coined in 1964, but it wouldn’t be broadly used until the 1980s, when graphic novels such as Watchmen and Maus achieved commercial success and critical acclaim. What happened in the intervening years, after the graphic novel was conceptualized yet before it was widely recognized? Dreaming the Graphic Novel examines how notions of the graphic novel began to coalesce in the 1970s, a time of great change for American comics, with declining sales of mainstream periodicals, the arrival of specialty comics stores, and (at least initially) a thriving underground comix scene. Surveying the eclectic array of long comics narratives that emerged from this fertile period, Paul Williams investigates many texts that have fallen out of graphic novel history. As he demonstrates, the question of what makes a text a ‘graphic novel’ was the subject of fierce debate among fans, creators, and publishers, inspiring arguments about the literariness of comics that are still taking place among scholars today. Unearthing a treasure trove of fanzines, adverts, and unpublished letters, Dreaming the Graphic Novel gives readers an exciting inside look at a pivotal moment in the art form’s development.

Summary Book Review Selbst- und Fremdbilder von Roma in Comic und Graphic Novel by Marina Ortrud M. Hertrampf:
Download or read book Selbst- und Fremdbilder von Roma in Comic und Graphic Novel written by Marina Ortrud M. Hertrampf and published by Akademische Verlagsgemeinschaft München. This book was released on 2020-11-26 with total page 277 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Roma sind als größte ethnische Minderheit seit Jahrhunderten in Europa heimisch und sind doch bis heute massiven Vorurteilen und rassistischen Ressentiments ausgesetzt. Die longue durée der vorurteilsbehafteten Heterostereotype spiegelt sich nicht nur in Alltag und Politik, sondern auch in den unterschiedlichen Formen des graphischen Erzählens. Mehrheitsgesellschaftliche Comics und Graphic Novels bedienen sich eines sehr eingeschränkten Repertoires althergebrachter Heterostereotype. In den gegenwärtig populären Geschichts- und Reportagecomics wird hingegen versucht, eben diesen Klischeebildern durch dokufiktionale Darstellungsmodi entgegenzuwirken. Diese Strategie findet sich auch bei vielen Selbstdarstellungen von Roma, die ganz explizit in den Fokus gerückt werden, um Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede von Selbst- und Fremddarstellungen sowie deren unterschiedliche Formen und Funktionen auszuloten. Der transdisziplinär-komparatistisch konzipierte Band nimmt dabei Perspektiven der Kultur- und Comicwissenschaften wie der Soziologie, Theologie und den Romani Studies ein.

Parents and politicians tend to focus on the usage of technology and emphasize its pros and importance for teaching. On the one hand, they demand for the newest media and technologies, but on the other hands they seem to refuse innovations such as using youth literature, especially graphic novels. While reading the classics keeps being a big part of the curriculum, the educational standards themself have changed. Especially while teaching English in a foreign language classroom it is now demanded to concentrate on fostering competences than making the students memorize several information. But the curriculum and the methods of teaching remain instead of innovating them. One innovation which still is not considered may be teaching English by using Graphic Novels. Firstly, it is important to define the term “graphic novel” correctly and to know about its traces and development. According to Hallet, graphic novels are fictional and similar to long novels, but uses the narrative form of comics. Graphic novels mainly arisen from the comic books from the US. Secondly, it is necessary to be aware of their benefits and how to use them while teaching English.

The following term paper will discuss the usage of graphic novels in the foreign language classroom, will relate to the educational policies and compare the advantages and disadvantages. Furthermore, a graphic novel will be analyzed and a teaching unit using it will be presented.

Download or read book Posthumanism and the Graphic Novel in Latin America written by Edward King and published by UCL Press. This book was released on 2017-07-03 with total page 264 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Latin America is experiencing a boom in graphic novels that are highly innovative in their conceptual play and their reworking of the medium. Inventive artwork and sophisticated scripts have combined to satisfy the demand of a growing readership, both at home and abroad. Posthumanism and the Graphic Novel in Latin America, which is the first book-length study of the topic, argues that the graphic novel is emerging in Latin America as a uniquely powerful force to explore the nature of twenty-first century subjectivity. The authors place particular emphasis on the ways in which humans are bound to their non-human environment, and these ideas are productively drawn out in relation to posthuman thought and experience. The book draws together a range of recent graphic novels from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Uruguay, many of which experiment with questions of transmediality, the representation of urban space, modes of perception and cognition, and a new form of ethics for a posthuman world. Praise for Posthumanism and the Graphic Novel in Latin America '...well-referenced and… well considered - the analyses it brings are overall well-executed and insightful...'

Summary Book Review The Representation of Genocide in Graphic Novels by Laurike in 't Veld:
Download or read book The Representation of Genocide in Graphic Novels written by Laurike in 't Veld and published by Springer. This book was released on 2018-12-19 with total page 230 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book mobilises the concept of kitsch to investigate the tensions around the representation of genocide in international graphic novels that focus on the Holocaust and the genocides in Armenia, Rwanda, and Bosnia. In response to the predominantly negative readings of kitsch as meaningless or inappropriate, this book offers a fresh approach that considers how some of the kitsch strategies employed in these works facilitate an affective interaction with the genocide narrative. These productive strategies include the use of the visual metaphors of the animal and the doll figure and the explicit and excessive depictions of mass violence. The book also analyses where kitsch still produces problems as it critically examines depictions of perpetrators and the visual and verbal representations of sexual violence. Furthermore, it explores how graphic novels employ anti-kitsch strategies to avoid the dangers of excess in dealing with genocide. The Representation of Genocide in Graphic Novels will appeal to those working in comics-graphic novel studies, popular culture studies, and Holocaust and genocide studies.
