Scholars of illustrated works—including comics, graphic novels, and animated films—from the UK, Germany, Canada, and the U.S. are convening on campus this weekend for the second annual “Illustration, Comics, and Animation” conference at Dartmouth.

“The primary aim of this conference is to bridge a longstanding divide between scholarship on moving and still images,” says Associate Professor of English Michael Chaney. The event, which runs February 28 through March 2, gathers a broad spectrum of researchers and practitioners in hopes of eliciting “interdisciplinary insights,” he says.

Master of Arts in Liberal Studies student Andrew Feather will moderate a panel at the conference entitled “Cinema, Knowledge, and Identity.”
