Graphixia | Graphic novels in the classroom | Scoop.it

Last week at 'Comics Rock', the 3rd International Comics Conference in Bournemouth, it was my pleasure to meet Peter Wilkins from Douglas College in Vancouver. Peter presented an interesting paper which aligned the reading and representing of comics with document literacy, as opposed to the more conventional approach to interpret them in terms of alphabetic and image-based literacies. It's certainly a notion that warrants further investigation. You can catch more of Peter's thoughts on comics, along with those of his colleagues, on their blog - Graphixia.

Blue - Interview with Pat Grant

Blue - Interview with Pat Grant | Graphic novels in the classroom | Scoop.it

"If the sentiment [of 'Blue'] sounds uncomfortably familiar, it’s because the unfolding story of the fictional Bolton is also the story of Australia, particularly Australia’s complex relationship with newcomers to our shores. The theme has been percolating in the mind of artist Pat Grant since he witnessed the Cronulla race riots on December 4, 2005.

The Sequential Art of the Past: Archaeology, comics and the dynamics of an emerging genre

The Sequential Art of the Past: Archaeology, comics and the dynamics of an emerging genre | Graphic novels in the classroom | Scoop.it

"Comics and archaeology should be natural cousins. After all, most ancient languages – Egyptian hieroglyphics being an obvious example – exploit the same image/text synergies as comics.... Comics in archaeology tend to fall into three distinct categories: comics about archaeological subjects, comics about the archaeological process, and comics as archaeological publications."

Gallipoli: The Landing

Gallipoli: The Landing | Graphic novels in the classroom | Scoop.it

"...written by Hugh Dolan and illustrated by Mal Gardiner. At just over 100 pages, this comic is an undeniably ambitious attempt to convey the scale and complexity of Britain's ill-fated seaborne assault on Turkish shores during World War I, wherein the bravery, tenacity and heroism of Australian and New Zealand troops gave rise to the 'ANZAC legend', and whose exploits were seen as a defining moment in the early history of the recently-federated Commonwealth of Australia (Kevin Patrick, Comics Down Under)."

Need to read Persepolis, looks great, I think I'd prefer using this as opposed to the novel The Kite Runner.
dilaycock's comment, April 19, 2012 7:21 PM
Great idea. The images provide potential for a whole new level of discussion. Check out my tags and you'll find some other stuff on Persepolis. BTW, there is also a graphic novel of Kite Runner. Thx for your comment. Am going to let the Legal Studies teachers at my school know about your Scoop.its :)
