- What the %@&*! Happened to Comics?
A Lecture with Art Spiegelman
Wednesday, November 10th at 8:00 p.m.
Schnader Theatre, Roschel Center
Art Spiegelman has almost single-handedly brought comic books out of the toy closet and onto the literature shelves. Best known for his comics’ shifting graphic styles, formal complexity, and controversial content, Spiegelman won the Pulitzer Prize for his masterful Holocaust narrative Maus, which portrayed Jews as mice and Nazis as cats. This event is co-sponsored by the Holocaust Remembrance Committee, the Klehr Center for Jewish Life, The Center for Liberal Arts and Society, The Office of the Provost, Brooks College House and the Departments of Judaic Studies, Art & Art History, History, and English.
