Looking forward and backward

So, after 12 years of research and 6 years of grad school, I’m proud to say that I successfully defended my dissertation yesterday and now have a PhD in Psychology studying the how people’s minds and brains understand comics. It’s been a wild ride!

What’s next then? Well, I have several papers that are set to come out soon or will soon be submitted to journals. Also, this seems like a good a place as any to announce that I will have a new book coming out in late 2013 from Continuum Books. It will introduce visual language theory, and will outline the basic structure and cognition of visual narratives. I’m very excited about it, and will post updates periodically as it approaches.

Thanks, dear readers, for your continued support of this work, and I look forward to big things to come.
