AUB Libraries is glad to invite you to a journey through its growing comics Collection.
Join us to discover a new comics character, appreciate a new artist, reminisce about a favorite comics serials from your childhood, savor the beauty and liveliness of the comics medium, its ability to capture the pulse of the time, and to say what cannot be said otherwise, in fun, bold, and truthful manners! Enjoy the wealth and depth of our flourishing and deeply rooted Arab comics tradition!
The exhibit showcases our AUB Libraries’ growing comics collection, and tries to offer a survey of Arab comics, across geographic locations, time, formats, subjects, mediums, etc. and to encourage the integration of comics into liberal arts college curricula, across disciplines.
Curated by the AUB Libraries in partnership with the Mu’taz and Rada Sawwaf Arabic Comics Initiative at AUB.
OPENING: Monday March 7th @ 6pm
When: Mar 7 – Mar 10 | 9am – 8 pm
Where: West Hall Malhas Common Room, AUB
