Graphic Lives: Telling Bangladeshi migrant women’s stories through graphic narratives

Last year, a project called 'Graphic Lives' involved a group of British Bangladeshi women telling their migration stories by creating comics.

There are some sets of the finished comics left with lots of potential for using them in a school library. There were 9 comics altogether and you can view them online

There is not a huge amount of text and the language is fairly simple, so the comics would work for students with a range of abilities - perhaps as a discussion resource or teaching pack, or simply to loan or give away to students. Through the project, we wanted to focus attention on women's migration stories (which are often overlooked) and to encourage discussion around a variety of issues, such as migration, belonging and culture.

If you would like a free set of the printed comics to use in your library, please email s.mcnicol[at]mmu.ac.uk for a set to be posted out to you.
