Women in Comics
25 October 2009 – 25 October 2009
On the 25th October 2009, a one day conference entitled, 'Women in Comics' took place at the New Hall Art Collection, Murray Edwards College. With its unique collection of 20th Century Women's Art, The New Hall Art Collection was seen to provide the perfect venue for a gathering of practitioners, academics, curators and enthusiasts. Women comic artists gave talks about their work, and broader discussion included the representation of women in comics. The event ran as part of The Cambridge Festival of Ideas week.
The conference is organised by Dr. Laurence Grove, Sarah Lightman and Catriona MacLeod (from the University of Glasgow).
