MIX 2012: The Aftermath…

You’ll recall in my previous post that I presented a talk this past Friday on using comics to teach rhetoric at the MIX 2012 Conference, CCAD’s Celebration of Comics. My panelists, Wendy Chrisman (CCAD), Nathan Wallace (OSU Marion), and Gretchen Scharnagl (Florida Int’l U) all gave great talks as well on, respectively, representations of psychiatric and mental disorders in comics, using comics to interpret British literature, and a service learning project which involved a team of art students producing a comic book for a hospital to raise awareness about childhood cancer. If you’re curious, here’s my slideshow from the event (and, if you’re even more curious, shoot me an email at mccorkle.12@osu.edu; I can send you the transcript of my remarks).

MIX 2012 CCADThis Friday, I’ll be a panelist at this year’s MIX 2012 conference/exhibit, an event hosted by CCAD. You should go, not so much for my presentation (although it will be pretty cool), but because Chris Ware will be thereā€”he of Jimmy Corrigan fame. But in case you’re interested in my part, I’ll be on the panel titled “A Pedagogical Mix: Utilizing Comics in Higher Education” along with Wendy Chrisman, Nathan Wallace, and Gretchen Scharnagl, talking about comics’ potential for teaching about rhetorical theory. And as my grandmother used to say, “See you in the funny papers!”

TIME/LOCATION: 11 a.m., Canzani Center Auditorium
