Belter Conferences

As well as the previously mentioned Comic Conventions we'll be at the following conferences:

Engage 2013 - 27th & 28th November

The National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement's annual conference, Bristol.

We'll be doing a workshop entitled Asteroid Belter: The Newcastle Science Comic - public engagement, comics, and awesomeness.  

This conference will explore the many ways universities and their partners choose to engage together, and the agendas these partnerships serve. It will provide an opportunity for open dialogue between the HE community, policy makers and funders, and the organisations working with them.

Comics Forum 2013 - 21st & 22nd November

Leeds Central Library, Leeds.

We'll be doing a presentation called Epic themes in awesome ways, or how we made Asteroid Belter: The Newcastle Science Comic.

Comics Forum was established in 2009 as part of Leeds’ annual sequential art festival Thought Bubble, which takes place at various venues across the city every November. Taking the festival’s emphasis upon the educational value of comics as its starting point, Comics Forum aims to increase the visibility and accessibility of comics scholarship through an academic conference that brings together scholars, artists and fans in a spirit of mutual cooperation and development.
