An invitation to meet the authors of graphic novella “Terms of Service”
I am pleased to join the UCLA Library in presenting authors Michael Keller, a multimedia reporter at Al Jazeera America, and Josh Neufeld, a nonfiction cartoonist, at two events being held at UCLA on May 19.
Admission is free, but space is limited, and reservations are requested (RSVP for each session below separately). Attendees will receive a print copy of Terms of Service and the authors will be available for signing.
Hope to see you on the 19th!
In Terms of Service, authors Keller and Neufeld take readers on a practical journey toward understanding digital-age privacy in everyday life. Come hear excerpts from the work, gain insight into into privacy concerns, and learn about the authors’ collaborative creative process. An audience discussion will follow the talk.
A picture’s worth a thousand words, as authors Keller and Neufeld show with their graphic novel Terms of Service. What might this mean on a university campus? Plenty, ranging from research publications to citizen journalism.
Keller and Neufeld will explain their creative process and how they used this visual form to illuminate an extremely complex issue, suggesting new formats for published research. Keller will also suggest how today’s citizen journalists, armed with smartphones and social media accounts, can embrace possibilities and avoid pitfalls.
