I am so honored to have been invited to appear at the one, the only, the amazing Vermont Folklife Center’s Pulp Culture Comic Arts Festival and Symposium. I’m simply beside myself with joy to be a part of this event. If you find yourself in the area on what will surely be a gorgeous stretch of fall weather leaf peeping goodness, comic art learning and reading and drawing, and all around good times, please do drop in and come visit me and the other ethnographers on our panel, Ethnography: Comics and Culture. I can’t wait!
I’m going to be speaking about some of my work as an artist and ethnographer of childhood this coming Wednesday in the UMass Anthropology Department. I promise tales of wonder and terror and joy, and hope to impress upon all present that — in all its forms– art heals.
AND, here I am CAUGHT in the ACT! Thanks to Dr. Krista Harper for adding me to the honor roll of those colloquium speakers she has sketched herself!
