Learning Hidden History with Picture Books and Graphic Novels

Presenter: Laura Jiménez
Time: December 1st, 7:00pm, via Zoom

Dr. Laura Jiménez, Department Chair for Language and Literacy Education at Boston University, studies literature and literacy through a social justice lens. The current renaissance of picture books and graphic novels written by and about marginalized communities provides new ways to engage with history. Jiménez describes how contemporary authors and illustrators use visual literature to center narratives previously unseen in mainstream publishing.
