Forum: Race and Immigration in Ethnic American Comics

Join us on October 15th from 3-5pm to hear about two path-breaking graphic narratives on ethnic American experiences from WWII to the present. 

This Fall panel brings together scholars and practitioners who are innovatively representing race, citizenship, and immigration through the medium of comics. Professors Kavita Daiya and Patricia Chu will be moderating this event that will expand GW’s conversation on race and immigration through the medium of comics through this conversation. 

Frank Abe and Tamiko Nimura will discuss stories of Japanese Americans who challenged their incarcerations during WWII. NPR editor Malaka Gharib will reflect on her memoir about being a Filipino-Egyptian American in contemporary America.
