Conference on comic guru Grant Morrison

"Which side are you on? The worlds of Grant Morrison" was a workshop that Francesco-Alessio Ursini, Adnan Mahmutovic and Frank Bramlett organized on the 19th and 20th of December, here at the English department.

The workshop involved researchers from Europe, Australia and the US, and featured 10 papers that explored the works and themes of Grant Morrison, one of the most important comics authors of the last three decades. The workshop also highlighted the vibrant and innovative research being carried out at the department, research that will appear in published form in 2015, and will involve a second workshop on comics around Christmas 2014 (fingers crossed!).
