Academic Research as Comics

May 21, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Cartoonist, author, and educator Will Eisner coined the term “sequential art” in 1985. In his book, Comics & Sequential Art, he explained that comics were, “an ‘art of communication’ more than simply an application of art.” For academics, there is no skill more important than that of communication. As thinkers and educators, our ability to cast our ideas out into the world helps us to refine and improve our thinking, and to impact audiences.

Join the UCI Humanities Center, in collaboration with UCLA and the UC Riverside Center for Ideas and Society, as we present a workshop focused on comics and graphic novels as vehicles for communicating academic research. This workshop will feature a panel of academics, writers, educators, and publishers.

Speakers include:

  • Ari Kelman, Chancellor’s Leadership Professor of History, Interim Dean of the College of Letters & Science, UC Davis
  • Charles Walker, Professor of History, Director of the Hemispheric Institute on the Americas, UC Davis
  • Nalo Hopkinson, Professor, Creative Writing, UC Riverside
  • Danny Snelson, Assistant Professor of English, UCLA
  • Charles Cavaliere, Executive Editor, Graphic History Series, Oxford University Press
  • Carli Hansen, Editor, ethnoGRAPHIC Series, University of Toronto Press

This workshop is presented in partnership with UCLA and the UC Riverside Center for Ideas and Society
