Teaching Comics: Academia and Sequential Art

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Comics have entered the hallowed halls of academia in a big way! After decades of neglect and disdain, universities are finally engaging with the form on its own terms, with classes and programs geared at teaching students comics theory, history, and practice. What are the opportunities and challenges of teaching comics? How does our beloved, scrappy, DIY artform fit into this new world? What does it mean to both the comics industry and the academic world that graduates with MFAs and BFAs in comics are entering the workforce? Justin Hall (No Straight Lines) moderates this discussion with a dynamic group of teachers, students, and comics professionals: Trinidad Escobar (Dummy Creepers), Nathan Fox (School of Visual Arts), Maia Kobabe (The Thief's Tale), Alec Longstreth (Basewood), and Matt Silady (California College of the Arts).
