**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

In the fourth presentation, Schachter proposes the idea that a new genre of storytelling is emerging. Artists, illustrators, and designers use the methods and strategies of comics and graphic novels to retell biblical stories. Like previous visual stories, the new genre retells old stories in ways that captures the contemporary imagination. Yet, the new genre has one significant difference. Any changes to the original text are made transparent. How are innovation and tradition maintained together in the same illustration or publication? Come find out!
