This coming week, I will be heading out to Europe for a series of talks and events in Switzerland and Germany, where I will be presenting work related to my forthcoming book Discorrelated Images as well as videographic scholarship (including the recent Videographic Frankenstein exhibition).

Here is a list of talks/events:

Daniel Stein on Comics Studies in Germany

Recently, Daniel Stein (my co-editor, along with Christina Meyer, on Transnational Perspectives on Graphic Narratives: Comics at the Crossroads) wrote an interesting report to which I’d like to draw readers’ attention. Entitled “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.
