TCAF'ers! On Thursday, May 8th, noted herstorian Trina Robbins presents the lecture The Brinkley Girls, World War I and American Patriotism in Women’s Comics at Ryerson University!
For anyone who hasn't checked out Trina's Eisner AND Harvey Award-nominated collection, The Brinkley Girls: The Best of Nell Brinkley's Cartoons 1913-1940, cartoonist Nell Brinkley had a fascinating career spanning four decades, where she shrewdly used her work to encode political messages, sympathizing with working women and making a series about First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. (Trina gave a talk about Nell Brinkley at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery back in 2011, and it was excellent!)
The Modern Literature and Culture Research Centre is located at Ryerson University, 111 Gerrard Street East in Toronto.
