Comic Art Working Group

This Working Group aims to examine the development of comic art – including animation, comic books and strips, political and gag cartoons - world-wide in terms of its political sophistication, role in educational and conscientization initiatives, within and outside the mainstream and in terms of the implications of the corporatisation of the media.
