Embarking today on a week long road trip with five talks about comics and my work in a period of six days!
Starting out in Toronto, at HASTAC's 2013 conference friday morning and then off to San Francisco for conference presentations Saturday, Sunday, and Monday at the American Education Research Association's (AERA) annual gathering. The sunday session consists of a group of other comics folks I put together including doctoral student and comics maker Jarod Roselló, professor Yen Yen Woo of the dim sum warriors comics/app, professor Stergios Botzakis whose reviews of comics and graphic novels are indispensable and fellow doc student Christy Blanch - who is currently offering the gender through comics super MOOC.
The final talk of the trip will be with Stanford's Graphic Narrative project next wednesday - looking forward to meeting all the folks behind this!
A little preview of my talk can be found in this image-text pdf I made of a past presentation.
If you want to get up to speed on the most recent work and some of what I'll be sharing at the talks, see the opening sequence to Ch3 here, the next installment here, and the most recent installment here. Ch2 in full is here, and you can piece Ch1 together, from the opening sequence, to the extended sequence on schooling here.
During the recent MoCCAfest, I was interviewed in this video.
Sketchnote master Mike Rohde featured a concept map of my thoughts on comics on his sketchnote army blog here.
Should be a fun week to share ideas, work through thoughts, meet a lot of good people, and be ready to get back to drawing in earnest when I get back! - Nick
