Graphic Books & Memes -- 3/18/21 Daypass -- The Comics Journalism of Josh Neufeld
From its roots in the work of Joe Sacco to the dynamic stories being done today for major publications, comics journalism is all about telling nonfiction stories in comics form. In a presentation featuring a cascade of images, Neufeld will discuss comics’ unique ability to engender empathy — the key to what makes journalistic graphic narratives so effective and compelling. Neufeld will unpack the process behind his many works of long-form comics journalism — many of which made their mark as free online stories. Josh Neufeld is a Brooklyn-based cartoonist and podcaster. He is known for his nonfiction narratives of political and social upheaval, told through the voices of witnesses. Neufeld has been a Knight-Wallace Fellow in journalism, an Atlantic Center for the Arts Master Artist, and a Xeric Award winner. His works include the bestsellers A.D: New Orleans After the Deluge and The Influencing Machine: Brooke Gladstone on the Media.
