Tales of a Comics Tourist: ADHD, Archives, and Adventure with the Jewish Communities of Cambridge and Glasgow

Melanie Hughes, Librarian and Archivist at Indiana University Southeast Library, is a comics and children's literature scholar, who began researching ADHD and comics in 5783. Their abstract on two North American graphic novels about girls was accepted to co-present with University of Delhi colleagues at an international scholarly comics conference in Cambridge, England. Kazaam!

This Shabbat Scholar talk will share facts and information about women and girls with ADHD, comics scholarship, and how India and Indiana scholars came to meet and explore the sequential art richness at the Universities of Cambridge and Glasgow, as well as Melanie’s bonus trips to meet the current Jewish communities and learn about Jewish history in these two university towns.

The Kiddush Lunch will be sponsored by the Julie Olson Shabbat Scholar Fund.
