Each year Wabash "rings-out" a new class to our alumni ranks. After the Bell offers opportunities to come back to the Wabash classroom and attend virtual liberal arts sessions with current faculty members.
Dismissed once as kids' fare or shrugged off as sub-literate, comics today are enjoying a Renaissance. In 2015, comics and graphic novel sales topped $1 billion, a 20-year high; books like Art Spiegelman's Maus or Alison Bechdel's Fun Home commonly appear in college courses. In this mini-class, you'll learn how to close read this deceptively simple medium, developing special, analytical abilities.
Derek Mong, Byron K. Trippet Assistant Professor of English
Dr. Derek Mong is a poet, essayist, and translator whose course load at Wabash includes "Comics & Graphic Novels," "Literature & Photography," and "The American Road Trip." His most recent book is The Identity Thief (2018).
This will be a classroom-style discussion conducted via Zoom, which may include full and small group discussion. A list of guiding questions will be sent to participants a few weeks prior to each event. Advance registration is required. Space is limited, so register today.
