News: Lecture at the University of Aarhus

This autumn has been one of the most hectic periods I've ever experienced. Several big projects in the making, including new books, big exhibitions and more. I have also managed to make a few official appearances, and tomorrow (the 29th of November) is one which I am really looking forward to.

I will be part of a seminar on comics and education, held at the University of Aarhus, Denmark, as one of four speaker; the other three being Dr. Bernd Dolle-Weinkauff, who will be talking about the impact of manga, fellow PhD student Rikke Cortsen, who will talk about graphic novels and finally artist extraodinaire Peter Madsen, who will talk about his masterpeice Valhalla. I will talk about my experiences of the combination of pedagogics and comics, both in general and more specifically about the Comics Art School of Malmö.

The whole program can be found here. This is not a free seminar, but if you are a student at the University of Aarhus you do get a discount on the entrance fee.
