Selbst- und Fremdbilder von Roma in Comic und Graphic Novel
Language: de
Pages: 277
Authors: Marina Ortrud M. Hertrampf, Kirsten von Hagen
Categories: Literary Criticism
Type: BOOK - Published: 2020-11-26 - Publisher: Akademische Verlagsgemeinschaft München

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.

Suddenly, comics are everywhere: a newly matured art form, filling bookshelves with brilliant, innovative work and shaping the ideas and images of the rest of contemporary culture. In Reading Comics, critic Douglas Wolk shows us why this is and how it came to be. Wolk illuminates the most dazzling creators of modern comics-from Alan Moore to Alison Bechdel to Dave Sim to Chris Ware -- and introduces a critical theory that explains where each fits into the pantheon of art. Reading Comics is accessible to the hardcore fan and the curious newcomer; it is the first book for people who want to know not just what comics are worth reading, but also the ways to think and talk and argue about them.
Black Women in Sequence

Type: BOOK - Published: 2015-11-24 - Publisher: University of Washington Press

Black Women in Sequence takes readers on a search for women of African descent in comics subculture. From the 1971 appearance of the Skywald Publications character “the Butterfly” - the first Black female superheroine in a comic book - to contemporary comic books, graphic novels, film, manga, and video gaming, a growing number of Black women are becoming producers, viewers, and subjects of sequential art. As the first detailed investigation of Black women’s participation in comic art, Black Women in Sequence examines the representation, production, and transnational circulation of women of African descent in the sequential art world. In this groundbreaking study, which includes interviews with artists and writers, Deborah Whaley suggests that the treatment of the Black female subject in sequential art says much about the place of people of African descent in national ideology in the United States and abroad.

Type: BOOK - Published: 2010-04-19 - Publisher: McFarland

To say that graphic novels, comics, and other forms of sequential art have become a major part of popular culture and academia would be a vast understatement. Now an established component of library and archive collections across the globe, graphic novels are proving to be one of the last kinds of print publications actually gaining in popularity. Full of practical advice and innovative ideas for librarians, educators, and archivists, this book provides a wide-reaching look at how graphic novels and comics can be used to their full advantage in educational settings. Topics include the historically tenuous relationship between comics and librarians; the aesthetic value of sequential art; the use of graphic novels in library outreach services; collection evaluations for both American and Canadian libraries; cataloging tips and tricks; and the swiftly growing realm of webcomics.

Type: BOOK - Published: 2020-03-31 - Publisher: ABC-CLIO

This unique guide offers fresh insights on how graphic novels and comics differ from traditional books and require different treatment in the library—from purchasing, shelving, and cataloging to readers' advisory services, programs, and curriculum. Challenging librarians to rethink some of their traditional practices, Maximizing the Impact of Comics in Your Library provides creative and proven solutions for libraries of all types that want to get comics into the hands of fans and promote readership. The author describes how libraries would benefit from an in-house classification system and organization that accounts for both publishers and series. In addition, acquiring comics can often be tricky due to renumbering of series, reboots, shifting creative teams, and more—this book shows you how to work around those obstacles. Shelving and displays that reflect comic readers' browsing habits, creative programs that boost circulation of comics and graphic novels, and how comics can play a vital role in educational institutions are also covered. • Addresses common challenges librarians face with comics and graphic novels collections, and shows how to surmount them • Offers a solutions-focused approach • Describes how comics can be used to better engage your community and to educate youth • Fills a gap in the professional literature, covering topics not touched upon in the existing literature • Serves as a vital resource for public, academic, and school libraries

Representing Multiculturalism in Comics and Graphic Novels

Pages: 286
Authors: Carolene Ayaka, Ian Hague
Categories: Social Science
Type: BOOK - Published: 2014-11-20 - Publisher: Routledge

Multiculturalism, and its representation, has long presented challenges for the medium of comics. This book presents a wide ranging survey of the ways in which comics have dealt with the diversity of creators and characters and the (lack of) visibility for characters who don’t conform to particular cultural stereotypes. Contributors engage with ethnicity and other cultural forms from Israel, Romania, North America, South Africa, Germany, Spain, U.S. Latino and Canada and consider the ways in which comics are able to represent multiculturalism through a focus on the formal elements of the medium. Discussion themes include education, countercultures, monstrosity, the quotidian, the notion of the ‘other," anthropomorphism, and colonialism. Taking a truly international perspective, the book brings into dialogue a broad range of comics traditions.
