Mini-Morph, Comics in Classroom Event in Second Life 3/18
Following up the Second Life Met@Morph Comic-Con held in October 2008, Mini-Morph is a product of Met@Morph’s roundtable discussion on college comic courses and will be held on March 18 in Second Life.
Mini-Morph is an international gathering of artists, scholars and students reflecting on the Watchmen movie and comic. How effective was the adaptation? What questions does it raise for the scholar? How do we explore those questions in the classroom? Expert panelists from three countries weigh those questions. The event will consist of five sessions – Make Like a Action Figure, The Significance of Watchman, Panel on Developing a College Comics Course, the Library’s Role in College Comics, and Open Gallery and Discussion from Second Life comic creators.”
