COMICS AND TRANSLATION: IT’S NOT JUST IN THE BUBBLE

Join award-winning comic artists, translators and publishers from Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, Europe and the US as we explore how this popular medium is used to engage with cross-cultural representations and understanding.
