Personal profile

PhD Project

My research aims to investigate comics as a creative, versatile form of communication that conveys stories and voices of refugees and other migrants. I aim to study the process and procedures that non-governmental organisations (NGOs) go through when designing and producing comics built on refugee and other migrant firsthand testimonies. Further, I investigate the ethics of storytelling and the power relationship between NGOs, advocacy organisations, and individual storytellers.
