Transitions 7: New Directions in Comics Studies

When:
Venue: Birkbeck Main Building

This event has ended.

Organised in collaboration with Comica London International Comics Festival, Transitions at Birkbeck College is unique in offering a regular comics studies symposium and meeting point in London, a platform for emerging research at an event that is free of charge and open to all. Originally convened by PhD students in 2009, Transitions has become an annual fixture in the UK comics scholars' calendar. We are especially supportive of postgraduate and early career presenters, but open to any new and ongoing research in our field. Our aim is to provide a platform for debate and a space from which further collaborations can emerge, to further strengthen our area of study and academic community, and to support connections between comics scholars working in diverse academic departments and contexts. This year we are running workshops as well as panel presentations.

Respondents: Dr. Maggie Gray (Kingston); Dr. Julia Round (Bournemouth); Professor Roger Sabin (Central Saint Martins)
