One year ago today, comicsforum.org launched with this introductory post. Today I’m pleased to present a look back at the past year of articles by major comics scholars from around the world, and a look ahead to what’s coming next for Comics Forum, including our annual conference.
Category Archives: Scholar Directory
Today sees the launch of a new resource on the Comics Forum website. The scholar directory provides information on the biographies, research interests, conference papers and publications of scholars from around the world. The hope is this will be useful in helping scholars to make connections, see where people are studying and what they’re interested in, and increase the accessibility of comics scholarship for everyone.
Until today the directory has been running in a limited pilot phase, with invited parties submitting their data for inclusion so we could work out how to build the pages and structure the system. Many thanks to all those who agreed to take part in this trial run. Now, I’m delighted to invite all comics scholars to fill in our data form and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion in the listings. Any queries about getting listed can also be directed to this email address.
