Alliance Francais: The Role of Feminism in the World of Bande Dessinée

6:00 pm on Thursday, October 29, 2020
To celebrate the year of la bande dessinée, we wanted to highlight certain artists in the world of graphic novels. This conversation will be led by Liliane Duséwoir, Ingrid Marquardt and Willem de Grave and will focus on some very talented graphic novelists and their brilliant work. We will learn what these voices bring to bande dessinée, how their work stands out, how they give visibility to diverse characters, and cast a new gaze on female characters. Our hosts will introduce you to the fascinating works of Pénelope Bagieu, Jul’ Maroh, Emma and Rokhaya Diallo. Join us to learn or to participate in the conversation about these important authors!
