She researches representations of girls' adolescence in contemporary coming of age comic books, as well as the pleasures and the pressures of reading as an intellectual and emotional practice.

At OCADU, she teaches in the first year writing program, as well as a fourth year seminar on comics.

Her teaching (and writing and learning) practice is inspired by Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, who writes:

David Griffin Exhibiting at Propeller Gallery concurrent with a presentation at Parsons

Thursday, November 17, 2016 - 5:00am to Wednesday, December 7, 2016 - 5:00am

David Griffin, Faculty of Art, is having an exhibition at Propeller Gallery (30 Abell St. Toronto), concurrent with his Conference presentation at Parsons School of Design in NYC on November 17. The exhibition will feature preparatory diagrams and a graphic-novelised version of an academic paper in which he developed the ideas for the show, published last year in MIT Press' Leonardo Journal.

Dr. David Griffin, Faculty of Art Lecturer, will be presenting his project “Ut Pictura Poesis: Drawing into Space,” in New York City this coming November 2016, at the Project Anywhere Conference. The conference this year will be held at Parsons School of Design, 66 5th Ave, New York, NY 10011, USA, Nov.15-17. "Project Anywhere is a global exhibition model in which the role of curator is replaced with the type of peer review model typically endorsed by a refereed journal. Emphasizing artistic projects undertaken outside traditional exhibition circuits, Project Anywhere is dedicated to the evaluation and dissemination of art at the outermost limits of location-specificity. Significantly, Project Anywhere is NOT an online exhibition space but rather a vehicle for pointing toward art located elsewhere in space and time.”

Book Launch: Let That Bad Air Out: Buddy Bolden's Last Parade

Let the Bad Air Out by Stefan Berg
Tuesday, December 4, 2007 - 11:00pm to Wednesday, December 5, 2007 - 1:00am

David Mirvish Books in Toronto presents a book launch for Let That Bad Air Out: Buddy Bolden's Last Parade, published by the Porcupine's Quill, a graphic novel by student Stefan Berg.
"Very little is known of Buddy Bolden, his music was never recorded
and there is only one existing photograph, yet he is considered to be the first bandleader
to play the improvised music that has since become known as jazz," said Berg.
In his new book, Berg portrays the culture of New Orleans parade music through the narrative of Buddy Bolden's final parade.
The novel consists of 70 images cut from linoleum. Stories told in pictures have a universality that transcends the boundaries of any spoken or written language providing the reader with a unique experience of a narrative akin to a silent film.
Let That Bad Air Out, is the first in a series of wordless novels to be published by The Porcupine's Quill. Feature books include David Helwig's Smuggling Donkeys and George
Walker's Images From The Neocerebellum. Let That Bad Air Out will be sold at selected
book stores including David Mirvish Books on Art, Pages and Chapters.

Venue & Address: 
David Mirvish Books/Books on Art 596 Markham Street, Toronto, Ontario

Heroes

Enter the Infeno by Vitaly S. Alexius
Tuesday, October 23, 2007 - 4:00am to Friday, November 2, 2007 - 4:00am

Our imaginations lead us to worlds where a trick of science and luck, combined with tragedy and loss can yield heroes that ultimately save the day. Heroes, who prevail against all evils and odds, will and strength, overturning death. When was the last time the world was saved?

Outside of inked comic book panels the world is a different place, though it would be nice to imagine that a blurred cape could magically make it all better. But would it be so easy? Suddenly displaced in the reality we know, how much can a utility belt really do? What becomes of the hero when everything they have, everything they are is not enough?

Participating artists: Vitaly S. Alexius, Hugo Arias, Aaron D. Dashner, Nik Dudukovic, Mike Fenn, Adam Horo, Yvon Julie, Elia Morrison , Jessica Newell, and Patrick Phillips.

I’m delighted to announce that several recent OCADU alumni have been nominated for the 2016 Doug Wright Awards, Canada’s premier comic awards.
