For my process research, I’m doing some work on memory. My PhD focuses on comics as a way to interrogate how we communicate via narratives. This year, I spent a lot of time analyzing how authors dealt with memory, specifically how they authenticated their childhood memories. This series is an examination of daily routines, starting at age 30 in 2013, and working back in 5 year increments.

I thought this would be a nice outlet for some of the work to reach a wider audience.
