      EVENT DETAILS
      HIGH NOON TALK: HISTORY THROUGH COMICS

      Comic books are more than just entertainment, come see why.

      Held on the first Wednesday of every month, High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics through this casual lunch-time lecture.

      Josh Abraham Kopin uses popular culture in the United States as a way to research historical questions. Join Kopin, a doctoral student in the American Studies Department at UT for a talk on studying history through comics. His illustrative talk will explore works by an Austin cartoonist named Jack Jackson, who spent years creating underground Texas history comics. His comics pose interesting ideas about how to approach history and the ethics of the field.
