Comics Forum 2011

21 Nov

Running across three days, featuring over fifty speakers and hosting more than one hundred and ten delegates overall, Comics Forum 2011 was our biggest event yet. Barring a few minor technical hitches things ran smoothly, and we enjoyed a wide range of very high-quality papers from speakers from around the world. We also saw some wonderful keynote presentations and discussions from Daryll Cunningham, Posy Simmonds, Tim Dant, Matthew Sheret and Tom Humberstone. A big thank you to everyone who came along and helped to make the event a success!

The 2011 page of the website has now been moved into the Comics Forum archive. The full text of the conference programme will be available to download from there shortly, and we also hope to be able to feature downloadable conference papers (subject to authors’ permissions). Watch this space for updates.

Comics Forum is now on Twitter, and the 2011 conference was live-tweeted by our very own Hattie Kennedy. You can follow Comics Forum at @ComicsForum to stay up to date with all the latest developments.

Comics Forum 2012 is in the works…


Comics Forum 2011 was supported by Thought Bubble, the University of Chichester, the Henry Moore Institute, Dr Mel Gibson, Routledge, Arts Council England, Intellect and Molakoe Graphic Design.
