Books By Author Jane L. Chapman

Comics and the World Wars by Jane L. Chapman Comics and the World Wars, Hardback (July 2015)

This transnational, interdisciplinary study argues for the use of comics as a primary source. In recuperating currently unknown or neglected strips the authors demonstrate that these examples, produced during the World Wars, act as an important cultural record, providing, amongst other information, a barometer for contemporary popular thinking.

Comics, the Holocaust and Hiroshima by Jane L. Chapman Comics, the Holocaust and Hiroshima, Hardback (June 2015)

Comics, the Holocaust and Hiroshima breaks new ground for history by exploring the relationship between comics as a cultural record, historiography, memory and trauma studies. Comics have a dual role as sources: for gauging awareness of the Holocaust and through close analysis, as testimonies and narratives of childhood emotions and experiences.

Gender, Citizenship and Newspapers by Jane L. Chapman Gender, Citizenship and Newspapers, Hardback (March 2013)

The gendered nature of the relationship between the press and emergence of cultural citizenship from the 1860s to the 1930s is explored through original data and insightful comparisons between India, Britain and France in this integrated approach to women's representation in newspapers, their role as news sources and their professional activity.
