Bloody Chronix, 11 November 2022

Artist: Lynne Zakhour @lynne.on.paper

We are currently planning a new event as part of our third year at the Being Human Festival. Taking part in the Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society’s Bodies. Stories. Health programme in November 2022, we will run an online lunchtime discussion on graphic arts, comics and illustrations in health. This panel will explore how graphic arts, illustrations and comics give space to marginalized experiences of care and chronic illness. We invite attendees to share examples of comics and graphic novels that speak to and/or about their experiences of chronic illness. 

The panel will include Capturing Chronic Illness project leads Donna McCormack (Strathclyde), Ingrid Young (Edinburgh), along with special guests.

This event launches Capturing Chronic Illness’s new zine – Bloody Chronix – produced in collaboration with the research project Transplant Imaginaries, artist Lynne Zakhour (@lynne.on.paper) and designer Richard Kahwagi (@rkahwagi). We will have a limited number of printed copies of the zine that will be available to attendees.

This event is part of the Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society’s Being Human Festival programme of events Bodies. Stories. Health, and in collaboration with the School of Humanities at the University of Strathclyde.

The event runs from 1-2pm UK time on Friday, 11 November 2022. Please sign up to this event at our eventbrite page and we will send you a zoom link to access the event closer to the time.
