First incorporated in 1836, Bridgeport is notorious for a raucous political history that includes both liberating accomplishments and salacious scandals. From a state senator who spent several years in prison for racketeering to a mayor who was caught taking drugs while in office, Bridgeport has had its fair share of unlawful politicians.
The political playground of the city has also seen invigorating leaders who fought hard to bring jobs, industries and prosperity to the community.
The city’s most famous mayor was none other than circus impresario P.T. Barnum.

English Professor Rob Nelson will talk about ways that comic books and graphic novels can address issues that blur the lines between high art and pop culture.
A lifelong fan of narrative forms including novels, films, comics, and rock operas, Rob will try to make the case that comics, especially graphic novels, are just the latest step in a long line of visual literature that stretches back into prehistory before the written word, a step that offers to carry us into a mixed media future.
