The mission of this seminar is to foster awareness about the research interests among faculty within the department, improve communication about areas of teaching and scholarship, facilitate collegiality across disciplines, and encourage collaborative research opportunities. Presentations will take place once per-month from 1:15-2:15 pm on Wednesdays over Zoom, with links provided with the speaker’s information.

Title: History Comics as Historiographic Archive
Wednesday, September 22, 1:15 pm to 2:15 pm on Zoom
Synopsis: Despite the long held assumption that comics in the classroom are a new thing, and that prior to the late 1990s/early 2000s they were vociferously banned in educational settings, the reality is that there is a long history of comics used to instruct. This works in progress discussion will bring to the table a selection of comics which can be generally grouped as “history comics,” from the nineteenth and early twentieth century; from the Anglophone world (largely the US and Canada) as well as Spain. Touching on the basic background of the works presented, it is the intention of the meeting to discuss and contemplate the various ways in which materials such as these can enrich our teaching and research agendas. If at all possible, please RSVP so that topically appropriate examples for the audience can be on hand.
Wednesday, October 27, 1:15 pm to 2:15 pm on Zoom
