Comics Lectures 2019/2020


It’s finally time to think more about, and with, comics!

The Comics Lectures series is a thematically open set of talks by renowned comics scholars. It offers a platform for international researchers to introduce their latest research activities to a broad public. Most of the lectures are held in English at Ghent’s city library, De Krook.

The program is accessible here.
