BCCS Comics Scholarship Symposium
Sat 4 June 2016, 12:00 – 18:00 BST
How is scholarship being done via the medium of comics? Comics can enable scholarship to be disseminated in accessible, reworked form for a wider audience; and can aid 'making learning fun' for younger students or interested amateurs -- but how does graphic narrative work as a way of thinking, as a way of data gathering, as a way of organising and enacting the research itself: a tool for scholars?
This one-day symposium will explore the possibilities of doing scholarship in graphic form, featuring speakers working in applied comics and graphic medicine, with a practical workshop to explore how the medium can work for you.
This event is generously supported by the University of Sussex Doctoral School Researcher-Led Initiative (RLI) Fund and Sussex Centre for Cultural Studies (SCCS).
