How is scholarship being done via the medium of comics?  Comics can enable scholarship to be disseminated in accessble, reworked form for a wider audience; and can aid in ‘making learning fun’ for younger students or interested amateurs — but how does graphic narrative work as a way of thinking, as a way of data gathering, as a way of organising and enacting the research itself: a tool for scholars?

We will explore this question with speakers from the Applied Comics Network https://appliedcomicsnetwork.wordpress.com  Graphic Medicine http://www.graphicmedicine.org  and in a practical workshop with other comics creators.
