MoCCA - Fairy Tales and Comic Books|
A bit last minute, but I figure it can't hurt ... if any of you are in NY, I'd love to see you!
On Monday the 28th of November (tonight) I'll be lecturing on fairy tales and comic books at MoCCA, the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art. So if you've ever desired the opportunity to talk about orality and visual aesthetics, d'Aulnoy and Richard Dadd, Scheherezade and the Green Lantern, rejoice! Below, please find a general description of the lecture, as well as directions how to get there.
Unless noted all MoCCA Mondays take place in the MoCCA Gallery, begin at 6:30pm and are Free to All! Doors open at 6:15. Attendees are advised to arrive early, as seating is limited.
(En)Chanted Images: Fairy Tales in the Oral Tradition and in the Comic Book
Presented by writer, editor, and scholar Helen Pilinovsky, this lecture explores the the development of fairy tales from oral tradition to the printed form -from the woodcut, to 19th century illustrations, to modern comic books such as Stardust, Castle Waiting, Aria, Promethea, and Fables.
