A. David Lewis Event

Thursday, April 20th, 2017 at 6:30pm
Library Instruction Room (209)
A. David Lewis

The School of Theology Library is thrilled to host writer, college instructor, and BU doctoral graduate A. David Lewis for a discussion on the overlap of religion and comics. Lewis will discuss how BU has featured itself in this burgeoning field, and the thinking that went into the forthcoming release of Muslim Superheroes: Comics, Religion, and Representation in conjunction with Mike Pregill at BU’s Institute for the Study of Muslim Societies and Civilizations, Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies. Says Dr. Lewis: “Quietly, BU is becoming a large player in this niche field, and the on-campus resources that I’ll highlight provide excellent entry points for young, rising, or veteran faculty to interface with this popular medium.”
