We had a great time at the Historiographics Conference held at the Amerikahaus in Munich this June! The main keynote speaker for the conference was none other than Hillary Chute who gave a talk titled “Comics at the End of the World”! In addition to the excellent research presented, there was a Practical Comics Workshop with Sheree Domingo, hosted at the Munich Documentation Center for the History of National Socialism . Bizarrely, considering the gravity of the location, the workshop was held with a background soundtrack of the KISS concert held across the street.
We had a great panel, chaired by Harriet E. H. Earle (Sheffield Hallam University):
Elizabeth Allyn Woock (Palacký University Olomouc):
Medieval Warfare as Aesthetic Hyperobject in Comics
Iain MacInnes (University of the Highlands and Islands):
Comic Depictions of The Hundred Years’ War
Dragoș Manea (University of Bucharest):
“I Will Always Be the King of Greenland”: Fantasy, Conversion, and Resistance in Søren Mosdal’s Erik the Red: King of Winter and Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli’s Metal
