HIST 2520 - Graphic Novels and History (CZ or HF)


(3) Credit Hours

Graphic novels have a long history of telling the stories of disempowered communities and individuals and modern graphic non-fiction has continued that tradition. This course will explore topics and themes in world history and the methods of historical research and teaching through graphic non-fiction. Students will study the identification, selection, and interpretation of primary sources and the ways that historians put primary sources in context. Students will interrogate the ways that historical narratives are constructed, revised, and communicated. Topics may include the history of Jewish communities in Europe, the Tupac Amaru rebellion in Peru, plague control in French colonial Vietnam, women in 19th century Gold Coast, and women-led slave revolts in the United States. Every other fall.
