What roles do humor, activism, and ethnographic research play in writing a graphic novel? This exciting form for anthropologists and artists immerses readers in diverse cultural worlds. Join anthropologist Sherine Hamdy (Lissa) and artists/writers Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez (La Borinqueña) and Lucio Zago (Williamsburg Shorts) for an illuminating discussion about comics, graphics, and culture. Their groundbreaking work explores a range of local and global issues: from urban gentrification to organ transplants, from migrant and refugee crises to cultural representation and superheroes. Moderated by Catrin Einhorn, senior staff editor, The New York Times
