Teaching comics has become respectable lately. The Modern Language Association has published a volume on the genre in its series of teaching guides; elementary school libraries stock graphic novels and non-fiction texts, with the explicit goal of attracting “reluctant readers”; conferences and critical essays debate terminology (comics? Comix? Graphic narrative? Sequential visual. . . . […]

Great Tech Spectations

The last decade has made it abundantly clear that, as much as we may desire stability, new and emerging technological media are profoundly postmodern: as soon as they stop moving, they’re moribund. If it’s on the syllabus, it’s already dated. Company’s got an IPO? Biggest new market is overseas? Congratulations, “new” tech — you just […]
