Symposium on Comics and Feminism

Co-organized by the Subject of English and Nordic Summer University. See link for more information.

Scholars, students, artists, and other professionals working with comics are invited to the third symposium of the network Comics and Society: Research, Art, and Cultural Politics (2019-2021). Comics and Society is an interdisciplinary three-year initiative that aims to cultivate our understanding of comics as a social and socially defined phenomenon and to strengthen the status of comic art and comics scholarship in the Nordic-Baltic region.

Through academic discussion, artistic work, and social engagement we explore how comics take part in making sense of societies, social phenomena, and societal changes especially, but not exclusively, in the Nordic and Baltic countries. In the third symposium, the focus is on transnational perspectives on comic art and feminism, particularly in the Nordic countries and the Baltic Sea region.

Keynote speakers:

Dr. Elisabeth El Refaie (Cardiff University)
Dr. Leena Romu (Tampere University)

Artist roundtable participants:
