iNKS Vol. 1, No. 1 - Comics and Methodology


I'm very proud to be a part of the debut issue of iNKS: The Journal of the Comics Studies Society.

     
     

In it, I moderate a roundtable discussion entitled “Comics and Methodology” between Bart Beaty, Scott Bukatman, Henry Jenkins and Benjamin Woo. The discussion first took place at the 2016 Society for Cinema and Media Studies conference, and was then edited (by both Woo and myself) and expanded for the first issue of iNKS. The panelists discuss the various methods involved in both teaching and researching comics as well as how interdisciplinarity is involved, the state of the field of comics studies and academic publishing therein, different audiences targeted by comics scholarship and more.

The roundtable can accessed via Project Muse (access required):
