The Humanities Research Group at the University of Windsor will present the English Department’s Cartoonist-in-Residence, Scott Chantler, in the 2015-2016 Martin Wesley Lecture, this Wednesday.
The Waterloo, Ontario, cartoonist wrote two highly acclaimed graphic novels, Two Generals, which was long-listed for CBCs Canada Reads, named one of Chapters-Indigo’s Best Books of 2010 and selected for Best American Comics 2012, and, Northwest Passage, nominated for Eisner and Harvey Awards. His talent extends to writing for a younger audience with his comic series, Three Thieves, which won the Joe Shuster Award for best comic for kids and was listed as a great graphic novel for teens with the Young Adult Library Services Association.
Writer-in-Residence activities include mentoring and reviewing student work, as well as public lectures and workshops. While in Essex County Chantler also plans to research the war of 1812 for a future project. The Cartoonist-in-Residence position is jointly funded by UWindsor and The Canada Council for the Arts.
It takes place from 4pm to 6pm in the Assumption Freed-Orman Commons at Assumption Hall.
