Posted by: Ron B. University of Oregon partners with RCCC!
The University of Oregon — home of the first Undergraduate Minor in Comics and Cartoon Studies in the country — has partnered with Rose City Comic Con!

The UO introduces students to the larger history and global traditions of the art form — from the earliest days of print culture to the most recent digital comics.  In their classes, students are exposed to manga, graphic memoir, bande dessinee, American newspaper strips, underground classics, and contemporary titles from Dark Horse, DC, Image, Oni, and Marvel, among others.  Just to give a sense of the range of material explored: UO offers an entire course on the history of the American superhero; another on the history of political and editorial cartoons; a third on the representation of war in Franco-Belgian comics; a fourth on YA graphic novels.  There are many more such classes, and they're adding new ones all the time.

At RCCC you can expect many hours of programming brought to you by the University of Oregon with Professor Ben Saunders leading many of the talks. There will be an art raffle of original art donated by some of the worlds leading creators to benefit future students by providing scholarship dollars! More to come!
