We are excited to announce Dr. Sherine Hamdy’s workshop titled “Arranging Visuals Spatially: Anthropology and Comics.” Dr. Hamdy is an experimental ethnographer who uses comics to bring her research to a wider audience. Her first graphic novel, Lissa: A Story about Medical Promise, Friendship, and Revolution, was published in 2017. Her workshop will explore creative methods and genres in academic publishing and storytelling. For those who are currently working on creative methods, projects and genres, Dr. Hamdy asks you bring a short synopsis or summary of your work, so it can be informally workshopped during the conference.
Please see more information about Dr. Sherine Hamdy from her faculty feature on University of California, Irvine's Anthropology department website.
