Posthumanism and the Graphic Novel in Latin America - by Edward King & Joanna Page (Hardcover)
About this item
Latin America is experiencing a boom in graphic novels that are innovative in their conceptual play and their reworking of the medium. Drawing on a range of sophisticated work, these graphic novels experiment with questions of the representation of urban space, modes of perception and cognition, and new forms of ethics in the post-human world. As the first book-length study of the topic, this book argues that the graphic novel’s emergence in Latin America acts as a uniquely powerful force exploring the nature of twenty-first-century subjectivity, emphasizing the ways that humans are bound to their non-human environment.
