The program of the next symposium Comics in the Nordic Region is now published!


Comics and Society: Research, Art, and Cultural Politics (2019-2021) is an interdisciplinary three-year network initiative that aims to cultivate our understanding of comics as a social and socially defined phenomenon and to strengthen the status of comic art and comics scholarship in the Nordic-Baltic region. Through academic discussion, artistic work, and social engagement we explore how comics take part in making sense of societies, social phenomena, and societal changes especially, but not exclusively, in the Nordic and Baltic countries. The network is coordinated by Laura Antola (lahean[at] and Anna Vuorinne (ahvuor[at] and funded by the Nordic Summer University.
