Queer Representation in Comics and Graphic Novels

12:00 PM – 12:45 PM


Celebrate Pride Month with two York professors as they look at historical representations of queerness in comic and graphic novel narratives.

Reading Comics Queerly

Jonathan Warren, Associate Professor, English Department, Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies

For most of their existence, comic representation of queerness relied on implication and suggestion. Modern representations of queerness have progressed to more overt 2SLGBTQIA+ themes, characters, storylines, creators and symbols. This talk will examine the comics of the past to understand how queerness was once depicted.

Coming Out” Graphic Narratives

Dr. Alison Halsall, Associate Professor, Department of Humanities, Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies: Out and Proud

Professor Halsall will discuss early queer graphic novels and offers her insight into the socio-political context of the time including: the Stonewall riots, the feminist and civil rights movements and the AIDS epidemic.
