SCRAPBOOKS, ARMY SURPLUS, COMICS AND OTHER STUFFA Conversation with Graphic Storyteller C. TYLER Thursday, January 31, 2013, 7 p.m. Annenberg Auditorium Reception to follow. Admission is free. Reservations recommended. RSVP at http://annenberg.usc.edu/rsvp Underground cartoonist C. Tyler has tried to capture the memories of her father, a World War II veteran, through a stunning trilogy of graphic novels, You’ll Never Know: A Graphic Memoir, which expands to tell the story of her family’s history. Sometimes she uses the printed book like a scrapbook, incorporating yellowed news clippings, wartime letters, maps, charts and graphs. In this illustrated conversation with Henry Jenkins, USC Provost’s Professor of Communication, Journalism and Cinematic Arts and Education, C. Tyler will talk about comics, family memories, material culture, gender, generations and the stuff that gets exchanged between members of a family. She will dig into her family archives and share the raw materials through which she reconstructed her parents’ stories. Presented by USC Visions and Voices: The Arts and Humanities Initiative. Organized by the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. Co-sponsored by the USC Gender Studies Program and the USC Comic Book Club.
