Liniers at Dartmouth: New Yorker Magazine Acclaimed Argentine Comics Artist

Ricardo Liniers Siri, better known by the name Liniers, is a writer, publisher and illustrator. His work has been compared to that of cartoonist legends Charles Schultz (Peanuts) and Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes). This Winter Term the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Dartmouth College has welcomed Liniers to teach Spanish 43.05: Drawn to Resist: The Latin American Comics. The course is set to explore how cartoons and comics have played important roles in the political and social processes of Latin America for more than a century. The course is designed as a workshop, where students approach the world of comics from a historical and practical point of view. It covers the most significant periods of Latin American comics tradition. By the end of the class, students will be able to deploy a range of different methods for analyzing comics, including formal technique, genre, authorship, and intertextual analysis.
