Teaching with Primary Sources Workshop: Comic Books and Context

Teaching with Primary Sources Workshop: Comic Books and Context In-Person

Kevin Fleming, Popular Music and Culture Archivist, and Jill Anderson, History/African-American Studies/Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Librarian, are offering a “Teaching with Primary Sources: Comic Books and Context” workshop for faculty and graduate students.


In this hands-on workshop, attendees will be the “students” for several exercises utilizing comic books from Special Collections & Archives’ Popular Culture Literature Collection and other related primary sources. The exercises will be followed by discussion and brainstorming on other creative ways to use these resources for teaching.

This workshop is a follow-up to our Spring 2017 workshop Teaching with Primary Sources: Popular Culture and Pulp, but will incorporate new activity, so is also a stand-alone workshop. Prior attendance at our spring workshop not at all necessary. We invite you to attend as our “students”!
