Time, Space and Narration, from Winsor McCay to Richard McGuire

Benoît Peeters presents new ways to explore the language of comics, highlighting experimental comics and visual novels from across the last century.

He suggests these works are as innovative and groundbreaking as 20th century film and challenge our perception of time, space and narration in unique ways.

Benoît Peeters is the creator, with artist Francois Schuiten, of the celebrated series of graphic novels, The Obscure Cities. He is an authority on the work of Hergé and Professor of Graphic Fiction and Comic Art at Lancaster University.

The presentation will all be available to view online from 7pm on Friday 9 October 2020
