‘This Week in Graphic Medicine’ highlights relevant articles (and tweets) about comics in medicine published during the week (Saturday – Friday). Links are typically presented without commentary, unless clarification of relevance is necessary, with credit given to those who flagged them up where possible. So without further ado…
This will be the final This Week post of 2018 due to the holiday break in the States! With that in mind, I want to make sure to direct your attention to the latest iteration of the Graphic Medicine Podcast: 2018 Graphic Medicine Year in Review. Listen in as MK and I chat about the tremendous year 2018 has been for graphic medicine and what we are already looking forward to in 2019. Then hop on over to this post in the Graphic Medicine Facebook group and let us know YOUR 2018 highlights!
Matthew’s Pick of the Week…
This week(s), I want to make sure you don’t miss the Call for Papers for Graphic Medicine 2019 in Brighton: Que(e)rying Graphic Medicine: Paradigms, Power, and Practices! The full call is far too long to post here, so I will say this: the conference is going to amazing and we want to hear your proposals because your work is amazing too! Below are the details about the submission process and due date:
Proposal abstracts should not exceed 300 words and may be submitted in Word or PDF format. Please include the following information in this order:
title of abstract
body of abstract
sample images or web links to work being discussed (if applicable)
presentation format preference (see options above)
equipment needed (e.g. AV projection, whiteboard, easel, etc.)
Proposals should be submitted by January 31st, 2019 to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Abstracts will be peer-reviewed by an interdisciplinary selection committee. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be completed by the week of March 15. While we cannot guarantee that presenters will receive their first choice of presentation format, we will attempt to honour preferences, and we will acknowledge the receipt of all proposals.
