Abstract

Visual Arts Research Some comics can be very touching! These autobiographical narrations are made by women from different countries who talk about their desires and struggles in their lives. We might feel identified with them in some ways... It might be hard to be empathetic with a stranger from a different cultural background! We might be surprised! Each of us took an autobiographical graphic novel with her: Fraise et Chocolat, Persepolis, Fun Home, and Nylon Road. Next week we would talk about their arguments. We were told to pay attention to visual metaphors and the different narrative strategies. © 2012 by the board of trustees of the university of illinois
