If you’re in the downtown Toronto area May 5 or 6, check out the New Narrative IV: Image and Spectacle Conference at the University of Toronto. New Narrative is an interdisciplinary conference on comics being held just before the Toronto Comic Arts Festival (May 7-8).
I will be co-presenting a paper on using comics in the social work practices of narrative therapy and strength-based approaches on May 6 at 9:00. The conference location is the Jackman Humanities Building (JH), Room 100, 1st floor, 170 St George, University of Toronto.
