Graphic Scholarship: Theory and Practice
A one-day symposium at Sussex University
Saturday 4th June 2016, 12-6
University of Sussex, Jubilee Building, Falmer, Brighton, BN1 9NZ, UK
@ukcomicscholars

How is scholarship being done via the medium of comics?  Comics can enable scholarship to be disseminated in accessble, reworked form for a wider audience; and can aid in ‘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?

We will explore this question with speakers from the Applied Comics NetworkGraphic Medicine, and in a practical workshop with other comics creators. This exciting event includes lunch and a wine reception and is FREE of charge but places must be booked in advance via EventBrite

This event is generously supported by the University of Sussex Doctoral School’s Researcher-Led (RLI) Fund and Sussex Centre for Cultural Studies.
