'Captain America on the Battlefields of Brooklyn' presented at the Graphic Justice Research Alliance Dscussions Conference, Oct, 20, 2018 at St, Francis College
Thanks to Dr. Nickie Phillips, Ph.D., Associate Professor in St. Francis College's Sociology & Criminal Justice, American Studies program and the Director, Center for Crime & Popular Cultures, her colleagues and St, Francis College for inviting me to discuss and show works from
'Captain America on the Battlefields of Brooklyn'
that was published in Freezeray Poetry's most recent edition [Poetry with a Pop], vol 15
I presented my remarks at the Graphic Justice Research Alliance's 2018 Discussion
at St. Francis on Oct. 20th, 2018.
The presenters in the all day conference described the cultural impact of criminality and justice on graphic novels and cartoons and the effect of graphic novels and cartoons on criminality and justice.
I discussed the placement of the statue of 'Capt' on Brooklyn's battlefields from the Revolutionary war..a war that has been effectively erased from public memory and in the context of theories of Nationalism that suggest that national identity is formed, in a significant degree, by fictions and 'historical error'. If you wish to read my comments, I uploaded them on Google Drive
