Centre PhD student delivers paper at 2012 Comics Forum

Harriet Kennedy delivered a research paper "The Confused Nationalisms of Bojoual l'huron kebekois" at the 2012 Leeds Comics Forum Conference.

The paper explored how Guilemay used the form and content of his Bojoual albums to explore contemporary tensions surrounding issues of Québécois nationalism, identity and provincial government policy in the wake of the Quiet Revolution.

The conference was part of the Leeds annual sequential art festival-Thought Bubble. Harriet is also a member of the organising committee of Comics Forum, an organisation which aims to increase the visibility and accessibility of comics scholarship by bringing scholars, artists and fans together in a spirit of mutual cooperation and development.
