‘This Week in Graphic Medicine’ highlights news about comics in medicine published during the week (Saturday – Friday). Links are typically presented without commentary, unless clarification of relevance is necessary. So without further ado…
This covers the period of 11/9 until 11/22 as there was not a post in the week between.
Matthew’s Pick of the Week…
We have a Toronto Conference Date: July 16 – 19, 2020!
We have a Toronto Conference Theme: Graphic Medicine In/During Troubled Times: Social Justice and Human Rights!
We have a hashtag too: #GraphMed2020!
Expect the call for papers to come by December 1st. You can keep up with all the conference information available on this page: 2020 Toronto Conference.
A dedication: Tom Spurgeon, one of the kindest critical voices in comics, passed away recently. There has been a profound outpouring of memories from the comics community and this week I want to ask you to pause and reflect as well.
The New York Times reported on his passing here: Tom Spurgeon, Who Surveyed the Comic Book World Dies at 50
