The workshop starts with an introduction to the medium of manga/comic book representations of text followed by a discussion of the imagery in the soliloquy. Then each participant will create their own version of the text. Facilitators and artists will work with participants as they imagine their own version of this famous text. Dr. Kristin Bundesen will lead this workshop.
