Abstract

Molly Scanlon's paper proposes that alternative narratives of foreign cultures in times of conflict can challenge the mass media narrative of Israel-Palestine through the work of comics journalist Joe Sacco—a writer who provides readers more in ways of the lived experience of war and initiates an alternative discourse of both international conflict and journalistic practices.
