DCAL, Room 102 Baker Library

Registration required.

Discussions about multimodality as one of the important tools students should develop in their initiation into college writing have been ongoing in the Institute for Writing and Rhetoric, focused on a range of possibilities: films, audio compositions, visual arguments, hyperlinked compositions, and so on. This session will feature Larry Gonick, who authors highly effective scientific cartoons presenting different domains of scientific knowledge. After a presentation of his work and approach, we will discuss ways in which cartooning could be a particularly powerful mode of meaning construction in our courses. Lunch will be served.
