More information about Nick Sousanis' lecture and workshop

Nick Sousanis is an Eisner-winning comics author and an assistant professor in Humanities & Liberal Studies at San Francisco State University, where he is starting an interdisciplinary Comics Studies program. He is the author of Unflattening, originally his doctoral dissertation, which he wrote and drew entirely in comics form. Published by Harvard University Press in 2015, Unflattening received the 2016 American Publishers Association Humanities award for Scholarly Excellence and the 2016 Lynd Ward prize for Best Graphic Novel. Sousanis’s comics have appeared in NatureThe Boston Globe, and Columbia Magazine. More at www.spinweaveandcut.com or Twitter @nsousanis 

 

Lecture: "Unflattening Thinking in Comics"

Nick Sousanis will present on his experiences writing and drawing his doctoral dissertation entirely in comics form. Published by Harvard University Press as Unflattening, the work argues for the importance of visual thinking for teaching and learning in both its subject and its form and challenges the forms of learning traditionally found in academic settings. In his talk, which will draw on extensive visual examples from his own work and other comics authors, Sousanis will call attention to the dominance of the written word, encouraging instead an interconnected production of knowledge created from both verbal and visual forms.

 

Workshop: "Comics as a Way of Thinking"

Join Nick Sousanis, comics creator and professor, for an interactive workshop that explores how comics can enrich your own critical practice through visual thinking and be used as teaching tools in your classroom. Learn how to make comics and explore your own creativity! (No prior drawing experience required.)
