  • Academic libraries can have a valuable role in questioning cultural, social, political, and other norms and assumptions that influence the creation of information. This presentation demonstrates how to create a richer opportunity for community engagement through critical pedagogical use of an exhibit that employed comics and graphic novels for an inclusive, reflective and connective library environment that offered cross-disciplinary viewpoints on identity, diversity, social change and historical context.
