I’ve been involved in quite a few comics related events lately.
29th of January: Panel Discussion on Comics
I organised an event at Ad Fontes, a student pub here in Bergen, where we discussed comics’ relation to other media and institutions.
7th of March: A Talk During Critical Thinking Day at The University of Bergen
My talk was called: “Å skrive med bilder: tegneseriemediets egenart og posisjon”. Put simpler: I talked about how the medium of comics has been viewed and treated by the academic community in general throughout history.
13th and 14th of April: Comics Course at Åsane kultursenter
A two-day comics course for children.
15th of April: Panel Discussion
Another panel discussion, this time on the Sproing award nominees and “best of lists” in general. More here. Also: a lot of other discussions and interviews, all comics related.
22nd and 24th of April: Two Comics Courses at Alfa & Omega, a literature festival for children
Comics courses for children at Alfa & Omega. More about the festival here.
