For German-speaking readers of this blog…
As a post-doc at a German university, I support the above statement from the
Verband der Historiker und Historikerinnen Deutschlands.
Daniel Stein (my co-editor, along with Christina Meyer, on ) wrote an interesting report to which I’d like to draw readers’ attention. Entitled “ Transnational Perspectives on Graphic Narratives: Comics at the Crossroads Comics Studies in Germany: Where It’s At and Where it Might Be Heading,” the article first appeared at Comics Forum. Meanwhile, a German translation has appeared on the website of the Gesellschaft für Comicforschung ( here). Whichever language you choose, please do check out Daniel’s article for an insightful look at the current state of a vibrant but still controversial field of research in the German context.
