Pascal Lefèvre

Pascal Lefèvre is special guest professor in the arts at LUCA School of Arts (campus Sint-Lukas Brussel). Since the late 1980s he has been researching graphic narratives. For example in 1993 he wrote with Jan Baetens Pour une lecture moderne de la bande dessinée, later he co-edited a volume on 19th century graphic narratives, Forging a New Medium. In 2003 he presented his PhD on the formal analysis of graphic narratives, with a case study of the most popular Flemish series Suske en Wiske. His most recent contribution is a study of graphic style in The Visual Narrative Reader (Cohn ed. 2016). Most of his research (over 80 publications in 9 different languages) deals with graphic narratives, but occasionally also cinema, television, and poster art were considered.
