In particular, the objective is to take stock of the recent studies showing graphic narratives’ and the comics medium’s capacity to represent and problematize multifaceted phenomena that punctuate our contemporary societies. The school will focus on how methodological approaches deriving from the humanities and social sciences are enriched by, and in turn cast a light on, the intersection of comics and issues such as climate change (Sidney 2020; Puchner 2022; Baile López, Caraballo and Rovira-Collado 2022), migration flows (Davies and Rifkind 2020; Serrano 2021), gender-related issues (Goldberg 20017; Chute 2010; Cox 2021), the rise and massive spread of new technologies (Berry 2015; Kashtan 2018).
