From her long-running comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For to her family memoirs Fun Home and Are You My Mother? Alison Bechdel has explored in graphic detail the overlap between the personal and the political, the domestic and the global. In this illustrated talk, she discusses how her cartooning has evolved over four decades.

Co-sponsored with the Fleming Museum of Art and the UVM Department of English.
