San Diego Comic Con and the (FREE!) Comics Conference for Educators and Librarians

Avengers assemble!
If you’ll be in downtown San Diego next week – either for Comic-Con or because you like streets congested with nerds – consider spending some time at the San Diego Public Library.

In collaboration with Comic-Con International, the downtown branch of the library is hosting the first Comics Conference for Educators and Librarians. And while Comic-Con is very sold out, the events at the library are free. Interested participants just need to register for here.

Along with several friends, I’m excited to host the first workshop of this new conference on Wednesday afternoon from 4-6 p.m.: “Teaching with Comics: An Interactive Workshop for Educators” (And yes, for you Comic-Con attendees, this gives you time to head to the convention in time for Preview Night).

For more information about the Comics Conference for Educators and Librarians and other events happening at the library, take a look here.

Also, if you will be at Comic-Con, Peter Carlson and I will be presenting a poster as part of the Comic Arts Conference on Saturday afternoon. Expanding on work we’ve been developing, we’ll be discussing representations of transformative resistance and critical race theory in recent comic books. Info on that session can be found here

Hope to see you soon!
