ACADEMIC SYMPOSIUM: TCAF at Twenty: Histories and Futures of Comics Communities
The first-ever TCAF Academic Symposium is a one-day, in-person event spotlighting scholarly research on comics in a publicly accessible forum. The symposium features leading voices in Comics Studies presenting original research in the form of conference papers and posters and engaging in scholarly roundtables on major topics in the field. The theme of the symposium is “Histories and Futures of Comics Communities.” Comics are communities, and communities are comics; the strength of one is the strength of the other. The symposium’s presenters will consider what comics communicate and how and where they might communicate better to make comics communities more inclusive, accessible, and dynamic. Each panel includes space for audience questions and discussion.
Location: Courtyard Downtown Toronto Marriott, FREE, registration required.
