Room 302 - Education

Friday June 30, 2017 - 6:00 pm to 6:50 pm

At the forefront of modern social debate is the nature of gender identity and how we move forward culturally with new understanding of the diversity within. Many contemporary graphic novels directly and indirectly address this debate by providing fictional and no n-fictional representations of individuals expressing and explaining how the definitions of both identity and gender have evolved. This panel will explore how this discussion can enter into the classroom and which texts could be vital in crystallizing an understanding of this complex topic.
