Perrin Kerns Speaks at Portland Comic Con

Dr. Perrin Kerns will join a panel of scholars at Portland Comic Con on January 25, 2014, sharing how academics recognize the form with curriculum such as Marylhurst's Text:Image concentration.

In Getting Respect: Comics Go to College, panelists will discuss how comics and graphic novels have come into their own as subjects worthy of — indeed, demanding — attention from academia. Historians and cultural theorists teach courses, hold conferences and publish books on various aspects of sequential art. Colleges and universities teach courses in comics as literature and social history as well as how to make them. Panelists include a cross-section of comics scholars and teachers: Perrin Kerns, Marylhurst University; Diana Schutz, Dark Horse executive editor and instructor at Portland Community College; Trevor Dodge, Pacific Northwest College of Art; Katya Amato, Portland State University; and Susan Kirtley, Portland State University.

Perrin Kerns is a member of the faculty in the Department of English Literature & Writing. Her areas of expertise include modernism, feminist theory, women writers, poetics, creative nonfiction and her latest passion, digital storytelling.
