Bannière De la recherche aux phylactères : la vulgarisation scientifique par la bande dessinée.

The Montréal Comic Arts Festival (MCAF) and the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Montreal (CIRM), in partnership with McGill Library, are pleased to present the opening of the exhibition Drawing Conclusions: Popularization of Science through Comics.

How does scientific research translate into short comics? From February 7 to April 2, our members' ongoing research projects, which were illustrated by different artists, will be exhibited at McGill Library. Projects from various fields, such as public space planning, “off” culture, religious sciences, ecological transition and digital humanities are to be discovered.

CIRM invites the public to meet our researchers and the artists who have taken part in the project, during the opening on February 7, in a 5@7 format. This will be an excellent opportunity to exchange with them regarding their research and creation process, as well as to discuss issues related to the accessibility of research for a large audience.

This exhibition is a follow-up to Martin PM's training activity on the popularization of science through comics. This activity led to the pairing of CIRM members with artists in the context of the Shaking the Foundations Conference, in October 2021. This opportunity allowed five researcher-artist pairs to train and explore the process of transposing research into illustrated comic strips.
