I took part in several interviews during February 2018 to discuss Marvel's Black Panther film, including a short feature on WIS-10 and a panel on Cynthia Hardy's radio show, On Point. I also appeared with one of my students on the WIS show "Awareness" for two segments (see video below).
I'm honored to have been interviewed by Osvaldo Oyola at the comics and culture blog, The Middle Spaces, for his second installment of "The (re)Collection Agency." The feature is described as "informal talks with comics scholars about their comics reading and collecting practices and how that intersects with their work." Osvaldo and I had a terrific conversation about my interest in comics about the South and my historical research on race and early 1950s comic books. Check it out!
Brannon Costello and I were interviewed about our collection, Comics and the U.S. South, by Dartmouth professor Michael Chaney on his blog. I am a deep admirer of Michael's scholarship on comics and literary studies, as well as his poetry and art. (He does it all!) We really appreciate him taking the time to ask about our book and to give us space to reflect on how we got started studying comics.
