Lecture by cartoonist and writer Alison Bechdel.

For much of Alison Bechdel’s thirty-year career she has skulked on the cultural margins, writing, drawing, and self-syndicating the comic strip ‘Dykes to Watch Out For’. Bechdel gained wider recognition for her work with the publication in 2006 of her groundbreaking graphic memoir ‘Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic’. After setting aside ‘Dykes to Watch Out For’ in 2008, Bechdel began devoting herself full-time to autobiographical work. A second graphic memoir, ‘Are You My Mother: A Comic Drama’, was published in May 2012.
