Diversity in Graphic Novels and Comics: Ethnicity/Culture

Resources to help you locate, create and learn more about graphic novels with diversity themes in the IU Southeast Library collections.


A person's ethnicity and culture can inform their everyday life: how they approach love, death, war, religion, mathematics (in India, girls are good at math and like to gossip in America there is a bias that girls aren't good at math).

Unfortunately, cultural and ethnic conflicts can often lead to war, so many of our featured titles deal with war, but explore the diverse cultures of the countries where the wars are being waged.
