A description of my talk:
What Comics can tell us about the Mind (and vice-versa)
Recent research on comics within the realm of cognitive psychology has hypothesized that the capacity to draw, especially in sequential images, manifests in the mind similar to language, with systematic grammatical rules and patterns. This presentation will explore what it means for sequential images to be understood like a language and how that compares to other domains of expression like verbal language, diagrams, and gestures. We will also explore what the ramifications of such a theory might be on education, development, and learning.
