SDCC 2019: S&M Sex and Marvel, or The Use of Fetish Gear in the Uncanny X-Men
Turns out telling your parents that you'll be talking about fetish gear on the largest stage of your academic career thus far actually can get better....
Telling them you won an award for it.
I received some good news this week that my work received an Honorable Mention from the Comics Studies Society for the Hillary Chute Award for Best Graduate Student Conference Presentation. And considering how proud I am of this presentation, and how sad I am that the Comics Arts Conference at San Diego Comic Con would have been this month, I thought to publish last year's presentation in its entirety. Enjoy!
