What happens when students of classical Jewish texts encounter visual representations of those texts, not just words? In her recent study “Reconsidering Religious Gender Normativity in Graphic Novel Adaptations,” Talia Hurwich learned that students often respond in deeply personal ways to visual representations of topics that may otherwise be suppressed by social norms around Jewish texts and practices. In this webinar, she will discuss the role graphic novels can play in mediating between traditional religious practices and modern social change.

Talia Hurwich is a Research Fellow at CASJE (Collaborative for Applied Studies in Jewish Education), The George Washington University. She is also a former middle school teacher specializing in the assessment of classroom innovations and curriculum design in STEM, ELA, second language acquisition (SLA), and religious education, with a particular emphasis on comics and project-based game design and role-playing.
