Logicomix Conference 2018 Guidelines


CONFERENCE: Monday 20 February

In pairs, create a presentation about your theme or character. As a guide, choose three moments from the text which together reveal the establishment, development and realisation of an idea or a character.

Your presentation should:

  • be approximately 20-25 minutes in length
  • be centred around three questions you will devise to help you explore and discover something about the theme or character
  • include analysis of three key panels/pages which are crucial in revealing something about your character or theme
  • the examples should span three sections of the text
  • be presented using Google Slides (construction of this should be collaborative)
  • contain analysis of both the written and visual language of the text
  • connect with the other presentations and ideas of your peers

How can you provide a nuanced interpretation?

Consider setting up questions what will allow you to analyse:

  • the key ideas, characters and themes;
  • how the author constructs meaning through structure and language;
  • how the author’s views and values communicated.
  • how the author’s views and values communicated
  • how might the characters/themes/structural elements or language use be interpreted?

This is not a ‘divide and conquer’ project in which each person goes off separately and does their own thing.  You need to ensure that you work together to construct a coherent and concise analysis of your particular topic which is of the highest quality and is intellectually rigorous.  You should be prepared to answer questions from your peers.
