Hello! 

I’m excited to announce that the University of Illinois will serve as a node for the upcoming Graphic Possibilities Comics as Data Wikidata Edit-a-thon. This Wikidata event seeks to address gaps in the digital record about comics in North America. In collaboration with colleagues at Michigan State University, University of North Texas, Ohio State University, University of Florida, and University of South Carolina to update entries linked to comics authors and publishers from the 1940s. No Wikidata experience required! Invite colleagues and students to sign up, and let me know if you have questions.


Graphic Possibilities

October 8th & 9th 2020
Sessions will run from 9:00-3:00pm EST
