Based at London College of Communication, UAL, and funded by LCC Design School and Research Office, the Comics Research Hub (CoRH) brings together world-leading academics from across the six colleges that make up UAL, and highlights the resources the university holds in its archives, as well as providing a context for the wealth of ongoing comics research at UAL.
CoRH consolidates UAL’s leading position in UK comics research, with an impressive list of outputs from noted scholars including Prof. Roger Sabin (Adult Comics: An Introduction), Richard Reynolds (Superheroes: A Modern Mythology), Dr Ian Hague (Comics and the Senses), Dr Nina Mickwitz (Documentary Comics) and Dr Ian Horton (Applied Comics Network) among others. Many ongoing projects are also underway.
