Comics @ Stanford
This group is a research platform that seeks to establish a bridge among people working on Comics from different disciplines. It also seeks to conduct research on Comics from a transnational, cross-cultural, and interdisciplinary perspective. We consider Comics to have rich traditions and artistic works that have been underexplored and have plenty to contribute to debates on Queer and LGBTQ+ studies, feminist studies, cultural theory, bio-politics, and the relation between fiction and techno-science, among others. By looking at the world from the academically peripheral standpoints of graphic narratives, popular culture, fandom, visual studies, and superheroes; this group offers a uniquely critical insight into modern societies.
