As an Anthro student I love it, as a comic book letterer I’m aghast. Entirely the wrong font to use for dialog, it breaks my heart .

This is very interesting and i really want to learn about how to applying comic as a research tools in anthropology. I think comic very useful to make people talk about their value, belief, vision. With comic, people can describe themselves, and share their ideas about their life (past, present and future life). Comic also can be used as an instruments for participatory research in anthropology and become media to encouraging people in discussion some issues like local politic, climate change, poverty, atc. This is very helpul for them in doing self-reflection and steering brain storming to find some solution for their problem. The rule of the Anthropologist here is a facilitator as well as a researcher.

I have been searching quite a while for evidence of anthropologists publishing work as ‘graphic ethnography’ or ‘ethnographic comix’ or however the genre shall be named. This is such a great contribution to the budding research community that struggles to justify creating rich ethnographic accounts that are read by only a handful of like-minded researchers. I have the same sentiments as Chamy, that ethnographic comix is a potential instrument for participatory research, which has been demonstrated in a few public health interventions I know of. Looks like I’m a little behind the times though - this was released in 2011! Have you continued to pursue this method, or do you know of others who have done this sort of work as well?
