Comics Culture from Print to Screen
Tuesday, January 19, 2016 - Monday, January 25, 2016
Please refer to full information and schedule at http://student.mit.edu/iap/ns82.html
This IAP activity will address formal and cultural shifts in the comics medium in North America and Europe with a particular focus on the US. The goal of this activity is to explore comics as texts and cultural artifacts in class discussions, viewings, readings, and some activities. Readings will include a mixture of academic writing and comics, including print, short film clips, and digital selections.
We will start with the early history of comics and its relationship to other media, and then move on to the current state of comics as the medium transitions from print to digital modes. In the final session, we will ask you to bring in the comics you want to discuss.
Sessions may be attended individually, but we strongly suggest that participants attend all sessions. Advance signup is required to guarantee a seat. To sign up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org the following information: name, MIT email address, your status or MIT title, MIT department/section, and a sentence or two about your previous experience with comics. All experience levels are welcome.
