We are very excited to announce that the first in our new series of research symposiums will be taking place this Friday, October 9 at 3pm EST.
These symposiums will be a chance for our members to share research that was originally planned for the 2020 conference in an online roundtable. Attendance is open to CSSC/SCEBD members in good standing, so please log on and join us!
Our first symposium follows the theme of Challenging Narratives and will feature work from three of our members:
Kaarina Mikalson – Superheroes in the Chthulucene: Eric Kostiuk Williams’ Condo Heartbreak Disco
Brandi Estey-Burtt – “Transableism”: Comics and Anti-Oppressive Education for Professional Practice
Dallas Hunt – The Last of the Krees: Captain Marvel as Settler Replacement Narrative
If you would like to take part in the symposium as a spectator and receive access to the participants’ research documents, please fill out the form found here. If you have not purchased your membership for 2020, you can do so here.
We will be holding three more of these research symposiums in the months leading up to our 2021 conference. The next one will take place in late November focusing on the theme of Nation, Identity, and Belonging.
