Self-Confessed: The Inappropriately Intimate Comics of Alison Bechdel

Feb 21, 2018
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Davis Center 401 (Silver Maple Room)

From her long-running comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For, to her family memoirs Fun Home and Are You My Mother?, Bechdel has explored in graphic detail the overlap between the personal and the political, the domestic and the global. This evening Bechdel talks about how her cartooning has evolved over the past four decades, and attempts to explain the strange alchemy that happens when one draws and writes at the same time.

Alison Bechdel is a cartoonist and graphic memoirist and a UVM James Marsh Professor-at-Large.

Co-sponsored by the UVM Department of English and the Vermont Humanities Council.

Note: This talk will take place in the Grand Maple Ballroom in the Davis Center.

Price: Free Admission
Sponsor: Fleming Museum
