This course is an examination of the representation of war in a
number of major comic strip albums. We will look at ways of
constructing historical narratives, questions of memory and the
ideological implications of choices in image creation.  Strips will
include "The Beast is Dead" by Calvi; "Maus" by Art Spiegelmann, and
albums by Hergé. All are available in English translation. The
course will be conducted as a discussion.
