What can the comics medium bring to our understanding of history, biography, and politics? What does it mean to create a ‘radical graphic novel’?
Join Bryan and Mary Talbot in discussion with Myriad’s Kate Evans (Bump, The Food of Love, Funny Weather) about the radical power of graphic storytelling, hosted by author and historian Alex Butterworth.
Kate will be talking specifically about her latest work, Red Rosa (Verso Books) a graphic biography of Rosa Luxemburg and the Talbot’s will be speaking about The Red Virgin and the Vision of Utopia, which tells the story of French feminist revolutionary Louise Michel.
Alex Butterworth is a writer and historian whose work encompasses a wide range of media. He has been involved in the exploring of digital narrative for more than twenty years. His most recent book is The World That Never Was: A True Story of Dreamers, Schemers, Anarchists and Secret Agents.
