Christopher Warren, Gino Galvez, and Jonelle Prideaux (California State University, Long Beach) use a systematic analysis of comic book character occupations to discern how gender and racial attributes correspond to the lines of traditional discrimination and job segregation. Elysia Poon (School for Advanced Research, Indian Arts Research Center) highlights the recent publication of an anthology of comic art by Native women artists to examine how the comic medium plays a crucial role in giving voice to a highly underrepresented section of our society. D'Ondre Swails (Brown University) interrogates the cultural politics surrounding comic book villains of color, particularly ones of African descent. Allen Thomas (University of Central Arkansas) breaks down the benefit of black comic book characters in bibliotherapy to provide an avenue through which African American clients at the intersections of varied identities can fully and truly see themselves.

Shelley Lloyd (Clemson University) reads Marvel's Black Widows as both feminine and cyborg using the works of Donna Haraway and H√©lène Cixous. Sydney Heifler (University of Oxford) traces a 1970s trend of romance comics writers addressing the Women's Liberation Movement by appropriating the Movement's themes to offer a new "feminism" that mirrored normative and explicitly antifeminist views. Tiffany Babb examines Saladin Ahmed and Christian Ward's Black Bolt as an example of how impermanent death holds weight, both emotionally and structurally, in superhero narratives in comics. Valentino L. Zullo (Kent State University) considers the work of the Cleveland Public Library in leading comics programming and the role of the public library in the future of comics scholarship, literacy, and the promotion of humanistic ideas. Brendan Gillett (NYC Department of Education) uses Scott Pilgrim as a source text to engage in simultaneous multiliteracy exercises while producing transmedial adaptations. Derek Heid (Temecula Valley High School) examines Jeff Lemire's breakdown of the family through a lack of open and honest communication and how the fragmentation of the family unit risks the coherency of the world itself. Anita McDaniel (University of North Carolina, Wilmington) analyzes Zack Snyder's ironic use of diegetic and non-diegetic music in Watchmen to disrupt the audience's suspension of disbelief and to challenge to the superhero genre's moral imperative. Kathryn Houk and Bredny Rodriguez (University of Nevada Las Vegas) explore the challenges they had as librarians building a print-based graphic medicine collection in a primarily digital library. Eric Bruce and Emily A. Lilo (Western Oregon University) share their lesson plan, grounded in social cognitive theory, to create space for complex conversations with youth about their life experiences using comics characters as the vehicles.

Noah Simonson (Hillsboro School District) presents a case study exploring the integration of comics as additive classroom texts into four Next Generation Science Standards-aligned science units. Danielle Kohfeldt, Charlene Vo, Maricela Correa-Chavez, and John Nguyen (California State University, Long Beach) explore how forms of engagement in comics-related fandoms may be partially shaped by a person's relative power in society, with a special focus on gender, sexuality, and race/ethnicity. Pamela Jackson (San Diego State University)explores the ways the San Diego State University Library uses critical librarianship to encourage critical thinking and scholarship on issues of identity, social justice, human rights, and economic equality using their comic arts collection. Benjamin G. Barrena and Todd C. Lilje (Naval Medical Center San Diego) use the depiction of doctor-patient interaction in Peter Dunlap-Shohl's My Degeneration: A Journey Through Parkinson's to argue that by stressing the experiential and the aesthetic over the technical, the graphic novel medium provides a particularly powerful format for pushing doctors to see through their patients' eyes. Divya Jindal-Snape (University of Dundee) traces the creation of Fibromyalgia and Us (2017), which was co-created by four people living with fibromyalgia, health care professionals, family members, comic artists, and experts to illustrate the life transitions caused by fibromyalgia and its impact.
