About this title


The Algerian War in French-Language Comics: Postcolonial Memory, History, and Subjectivity analyzes representations of the Algerian War in French-language comics published since 1982. Throughout this book, Howell investigates the ways in which marginalized memory communities resist, rewrite, and/or repair institutionalized history in popular culture. This is achieved by applying Marianne Hirsch's concept of postmemory to postcolonial comics, by exploring comics as a multimodal medium uniquely positioned to engage with the complexity of postcolonial memory, history and subjectivity, and by problematizing current teaching practices in secondary education.


[T]his is a compelling book about the politics of memory and the visual practices of France's graphic novels. Jennifer Howell provides a rich case study of French comics about the Algerian War that is both historically resonant and immediate in its contemporary applicability.--European Comic Art

Jennifer Howell displays her remarkable expertise in The Algerian War in French-Language Comics: Postcolonial Memory, History, and Subjectivity, a monograph where the interdisciplinary nature of French cultural studies is beautifully illustrated. Howell's work shows how French-language comics about the Algerian War have both shaped and reinterpreted historical memories and consequently affected France's relationship to its colonial past as well as its legacy in the present. As such, her book not only engages with colonial and postcolonial studies, but also with history, memory and postmemory.--The Journal of North African Studies
