The People of the [Comic] Book: A Discussion of Jews and Comics

by Steve Bergson

Unfortunately, I learned about this event days after it happened.

Fortunately, someone decided to record the event and has uploaded the video here.

Date/Time: Thursday, April 1, 2010, 7:00 PM–9:00 PM
Admission: Free to Institute for Comics Studies attendees or free with Museum admission.
Venue: The Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco

A roundtable discussion about the connection between Jews and comics, both past and present, with Miriam Libicki (jobnik!) and Michael Aushenker (Cartoon Flophouse), as well as scholars Craig Kleinman, Joel Schechter, Lou Schubert, and Rabbi Harry Manhoff.

The roundtable was done in connection with the 2010 WonderCon and Institute for Comics Studies, and in collaboration with the Cartoon Art Museum.
