Science Comics Can Save the World! — Jay Hosler — TEDxJuniataCollege

Published on May 16th, 2018 • TEDx Talks

Comics are more than just the union of words and pictures; they are an emergent property that springs from the union of language and art. Yet despite the phenomenal narrative and explanatory power they present, comics have long been relegated to the realm of juvenile pabulum. At TEDxJuniataCollege, Biology professor and award-wining graphic novelist Jay Hosler explains how his use of graphic and fictional narratives engage audiences and help them understand and remember difficult scientific concepts. To the Juniata community, Dr. Hosler is best known as the Chair of the Biology Department, but to many children and young adults, he is a multiple award-winning graphic novelist and illustrator. At TEDxJuniata, Dr. Hosler will share his idea of how science comics can make an audience understand and care about aspects in the world that they never knew existed before. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
