This month’s episode features a recording of the Mental Health Comics Panel from MICE 2018, Moderated by A. David Lewis, MCPHS University. Panelists include:
- Lucy Bellwood – 100 Demon Dialogues
- Kevin Budnik – Handbook
- LB Lee – MPD for You & Me
- Robyn Smith – Saddest, Angriest Black Girl in Town (also see this site.)
- Rachel Lindsay – Rx (also see this article.)
Also relevant to this episode, quoting Matthew Noe’s This Week in Graphic Medicine, please note this Call for Papers: Invisible Made Visible: Comics and Mental Illness, to be edited by Leah Misemer & Jessica Gross. Matthew writes, “What makes me so excited about this volume is that they are purposely seeking not only scholarly essays, but original comics and course designs as well. This is a route that I wish ALL graphic medicine scholarly collections will take in the future: walk-the-walk so to speak, but also sharing pedagogical ideas freely so that all may benefit…. Please contact Leah or Jessica with any questions and do please consider submitting an abstract – due January 28th, 2019.”
And in the episode, I promise a link to Jarrett Krosoczka on Fresh Air with Terry Gross.
