My name is Julian C. Chambliss, and I teach classes in comics and popular culture. I’m developing student centered DH project called Critical Fanscape, that looks at way to think about document, preserving, and presenting culture linked fan engagement with comics in U.S. culture. I’m also developing a project called Mapping Black Imaginaries and Geographies (MAPPING BIG) which examines the black imaginary through consideration of artifacts linked to speculative practice and networks linked to the black community development.
