Teaching for Social Justice with Comics

Three diverse comic-nerd-educators come together to explore comics as a cultural and educational lens – allegories for society, reflections of self, and fantasies of change in the classroom and the world. As a subversive artform itself, we rethink comic’s role beyond children’s literacy into a framework of social justice education for all learners through specific texts (Black Panther, La Borinqueña, X-Men, and more) , films, TV, and participatory fan culture including fanart and cosplay.
