        Alison Bechdel, Cartoonist and Graphic Memoirist | MacArthur Fellows Program

        In this interview, 2014 MacArthur Fellow Alison Bechdel, talks about the evolution of her work as a cartoonist and graphic memoirist, and how she explores complex themes such as identity and family relationships through her illustrated narratives. Bechdel’s aesthetic was established in her comic strip, Dykes to Watch Out For, which captured the diverse lives of a community of lesbian women navigating contemporary events. Her recent book-length graphic memoir, Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, was adapted into a Tony Award winning Broadway musical in 2014. This resource is part of the MacArthur Fellows Program Collection.
