Speaking Event: Harvard – Comics and Muslim Identity, April 30, 2011

The final two events in our year of programming around comics, graphic novels, the Middle East and Muslim communities will be happening at the end of the month!

The panel event on Saturday, April 30th from 10:00 – 2:00 on the Harvard Divinity School campus will bring together scholars engaging with the intersections between comics and Muslim identity from a variety of vantage points. See more information here.

The afternoon and evening preceding the panel we will be running, with the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Islamic Studies Program, and open comic making workshop from 11:00am – 4:00pm (See more information here). The goal of this workshop is to engage Harvard students and Boston community members in sharing and communicating their experiences living, traveling, learning, and teaching about the Middle East region and / or Muslim identity through comics arts. We will additionally be Skyping with grassroots and independent comics artists in the Middle East region to learn more about their process and projects.
