Social Sciences/Comics: A Commentary on Sociologica’s Exploration of Comics
Keywords:Comics Studies, Social Science, Accessibility, Dissemination, Translation, Adaptation, Impact, Institutions
The writings collected in issue 15(1) of Sociologica take diverse approaches to the relationships between social sciences and comics. This commentary identifies several of the themes that bring these pieces together and make some suggestions for how the ideas and approaches sketched out in these pieces might be developed further in the future. The commentary explores how the ideas set forth in the articles overlap with concerns found in the field of Comics Studies and what the lessons learned by Comics Studies might have to offer to the field of social sciences.
