Global Issues Through Literature Series Workshop
Mark Best, Senior Lecturer in English Literature and Film and Media Studies at University of Pittsburgh

In this third installment of the 2022 Global Issues Through Literature Series (GILS), educators will convene to discuss Kate Evans' Threads: From the Refugee Crisis, a full-graphic novel of the refugee drama addressing one of the most pressing issues of modern times to make a compelling case, through intimate evidence, for the compassionate treatment of refugees and the free movement of peoples.
GILS is a reading group for K-16 educators to literary texts from a global perspective. Content specialists present the work and its context, and participants brainstorm innovative pedagogical practices for incorporating the text and its themes into the curriculum. This year’s theme is Graphic Novels in Global Context: Social Justice Through Illustration and Text. See registration for more information!
