At this one-day symposium, co-sponsored by CHASE and the Eastern ARC Events Fund, participants will have the chance to discover and engage with cutting-edge research into comics, cartooning and drawn images. Eight invited speakers will present a 30-minute paper on their recent research before facing a prepared critical response from an invited respondent and questions from the audience. The event is designed to provoke discussion between research disciplines and offer input for new and current researchers and engagement with the potential for interdisciplinary work.
