**Part of the Four-Part Lecture/Workshop Series “Shazam! Jewish Biblical Texts Transformed by the Power of Pictures”**
Featuring Ben Schachter, Artist in Residence, Jewish Studies Program, University of Pittsburgh
The second presentation focuses on the ways in which stories are changed in their retelling. This lecture examines stories such as Noah and the Ark and Abraham’s early life. Examples will come from graphic novels and film adaptations. Examples include Titan A.E. (film, 2000), Young Abraham (film, 2011), and the graphic novel and film entitled Noah (2014). Adaptations can change the genre of the story and incorporate rabbinic interpretations, traditionally called midrash, that are not found in the biblical text.
