Today’s podcast conversation is with Susan Squier, PhD, Brill Professor of English, Women’s Studies, and Science,Technology and Society Studies at Penn State University. Susan’s extensive teaching and scholarship includes several articles on the use of comics in the medical context.
Ian and I were fortunate enough to be able to spend time with Susan in State College, Pennsylvania in early March.
In this conversation, we discuss how Susan began working with comics, how she feels comics and medicine are connected, and her hopes for the future of the Graphic Medicine movement.
Susan will be presenting on “Studio Time in the Literature and Medicine Classroom” with colleagues at the 2012 Comics & Medicine conference in Toronto this July.
