Faculty to present at Comic-Con

Teachers College, Henderson faculty Dr. Matthew Sutherlin and Michelle Johnson, along with alumnae Amy Counts, will present at the Comic Arts Conference at Comic-con International in July.

They will discuss STEAM juxtaposed with the comic book genre to engage public school students in project-based learning.

Comic-Con International: San Diego is a nonprofit educational corporation dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for, comics and related popular artforms, primarily through the presentation of conventions and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of comics to art and culture.

It has presented thousands of special guests at its conventions over the years, bringing comics creators, science fiction and fantasy authors, film and television directors, producers, and writers, and creators from all aspects of the popular arts together with their fans for a fun and often times candid discussion of various art forms.
