‘This Week in Graphic Medicine’ highlights relevant articles 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…
Matthew’s Pick of the Week…
This week’s picks include big news about the Brighton Conference: Brighton keynote speaker announcement: Dr. Meg-John Barker! The conference is really shaping up to be an amazing event and I’m looking forward to seeing as many of you there as possible! If you have any questions about this year’s conference, don’t hesitate to ask us.
In addition, I want to call your attention to a recently completed comics project – There’s No Bus Map for Dementia – that was funded by Arts Council England and completed by the dream team of Sarah McNicol and Cathy Leamy. You can view the comic online, via PDF, and soon to be in print. If you’re in the Manchester area, consider joining them for the launch of the comic!
And a quick note: no tweets for this period. I am giving a great deal of thought to no longer collecting them as typical for these posts – as you may have seen me asking about how important that aspect of these posts are for folks on Twitter – for a couple of reasons. One major one being the amount of time it takes in comparison to my dwindling freedom to make these each week. Another is that so long as things are tagged with #GraphicMedicine, they are quite easily searchable already – and I’m not convinced the Wakelet format makes finding the one’s you want any easier. If you have strong feelings about this one way or another, please, please let me know.
Queerying Graphic Medicine – Paradigms, Power and Practices – 11-13 July 2019 is getting closer! As promised in an email last week to folks proposing presentations, you should be seeing news of your proposal’s status either already or in the coming days. Exciting!
Even more exciting perhaps is that I am happy to share that registration for the conference is now open! You can find more information and register at this link! Pricing below:
Early Bird Registration – £100 (available until 1st June 2019)
