座谈摘要:

The popularity of graphic pathographies—long-form comics by and about subjects who have been ill or witnessed a family member’s severe illness—speaks to the value and necessity of individual narratives against recontextualized medical narratives. The latter involves a doctor who records patients’ symptoms and returns the case to them in medical terms. In the former, the patient chooses how to narrate her pain and suffering, a recounting sometimes at odds with clinical assessments. Graphic pathographies visualize the lacuna in medical diagnoses to illuminate an individual’s confrontation with illness, not an institutionalized narration of it. Under the rubric of the medical humanities, graphic medicine illustrates and teaches compassion for those who suffer. In this presentation, I will look at four graphic pathologies— Powell’s Swallow Me Whole, Dillon’s The Nao of Brown, Vamistendael’s When David Lost His Voice, and David B’s Epileptic—discussing how their unique use of visual rhetoric informs the narrative context.
