Zoom ID 298 656 1787 (online only!)
In this talk—the first of a four-part series on the topic of translation, broadly understood—Rasha Chatta will guide us through the world of Arab graphic narratives, with a focus on its history, multilingualism, and close ties to a revolutionary moment: the need for a new (visual) language. All are welcome to join!
Rasha Chatta is a Research Fellow at EUME—Forum Transregionale Studien, Germany, and at the Merian Centre for Advanced Studies in the Maghreb (MECAM), Tunisia, where she is working on a book project on migration and war in Arab comics. She earned her PhD in Cultural, Literary, and Postcolonial Studies from SOAS, University of London, with a dissertation on contemporary Arab migrant literature.
