Hattie Kennedy

Hattie Kennedy

In Episode 6 we chat with Hattie Kennedy. Hattie has recently completed a PhD at the University of Glasgow, looking at political comic strips from the 1980 and ’95 Québec independence referenda and how they affected voters’ perceptions of the figure involved.



Besides her academic studies, Hattie also writes about comics for the Graphixia and Panels websites and was one of the organisers of the Comics Unconference that took place in Glasgow in 2015.


In this conversation we talk about how widespread the academic study of cartoon material has become around the UK; pay tribute to the Stirling Maxwell Centre at Glasgow Uni; compare Scottish political cartooning with Québecois and Catalonian material; and reveal a couple of new projects Hattie will be working on now her thesis is finally complete.
