Comfy, Putzi, Punta – On the Necessity of Global and Transnational Comics History

Focusing on the case of Dolly Dimples and Bobby Bounce by Grace Gebbie Drayton, Pavel Kořínek explores the journey some comics take across national borders and how meanings and significance can change with a new national context.

Dr Pavel Kořínek is a Prague-based comics theorist, historian and journalist, working at the Institute of Czech Literature and a founding member of the Centre for the Study of Comics ICL / UP.

As an author Pavel has written a number of monographs on eastern European comics including Punta, in association with Lucie Kořínková.

The presentation will all be available to view online from 7pm on Friday 9 October 2020
