CBLDF Executive Director Discusses the Power of Comics in Norway

cb_bioCBLDF Executive Director Charles Browstein recently took the fight for the freedom to read to Norway, and we now have the video evidence to prove it! The amazing folks at Creative Mornings, which hosted one of Brownstein’s lectures, “The Power of Comics,” just released a recording of his talk.

Despite the early hour, Brownstein spoke to a capacity crowd at Grafill on March 24, discussing how the perception of comics has changed over the years and the challenges that comics still face in a more-accepting 21st century. Brownstein discusses how comics have become a force in mass media and how comics are used to tell diverse stories for diverse audiences. From Japanese manga to Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home and more, Brownstein discusses how comics are used around the world to tell stories and share ideas.

The video of Brownstein’s talk follows below.
