ABC residency for Swinburne animation lecturer and comic researcher

Congratulations to Swinburne University animation lecturer and comic artist Darren Fisher who was selected from more than 150 applicants to receive one of the ABC’s 2019 Top 5 Humanities and Social Sciences Media Residencies.

Dr Fisher will use his two-week residency at ABC RN to educate the public on the role of comics and the importance of creative practice. “For a host of reasons, both historical and practical, research at the tertiary level is rooted in STEM structures such as peer reviewed publication through journal articles,” Dr Fisher explained. “I want to help spread awareness of creative practitioners, often called practice-based researchers, whose work doesn’t always conform to traditional research paradigms.”
