Nick Sousanis is a scholar, art critic, cartoonist, educational innovator and assistant professor of humanities and liberal studies at San Francisco State University who transcends traditional notions of scholarship. He wrote and drew his doctoral dissertation entirely in comic book form and published it as the groundbreaking graphic novel Unflattening (Harvard University Press), receiving the 2016 American Publishers Awards for Professional and Scholarly Excellence in Humanities, the Lynd Ward Prize for Best Graphic Novel of 2015, and a nomination for an Eisner Award. Sousanis’s work has been featured in Nature, the Paris Review, the New York Times, the LA Review of Books, PrintMag, Inside Higher Ed, the Chronicle of Higher Education, Publishers Weekly, Daily Edventures, and Russia’s Theory & Practice for the new possibilities for scholarship that it represents.
Please join us for a talk on Sousanis’s transdisciplinary work and a discussion on how the arts can re–imagine the modern–day university.
