When the experience of being a refugee is utterly foreign to us, how can a comic artist bring the lived turmoil of war and loss to us in a way that invites empathy? Graphic narratives of displacement bring us face to face with the suffering of others, but also expose the limits of our compassion and challenge us to move from seeing to acting.
Hosted by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
