The publication intends to promote reading among university students and will be a part of the contents of the Manga Fair of Madrid and Barcelona
The vice-rector of Students of the University of Cádiz, David Almorza, the vice-rector of Social, Cultural and International Projection, Marina Gutiérrez, and the coordinator of the Comic Library, José Joaquín Rodríguez, have presented the magazine Historietas this morning; a publication that, according to its promoters, intends to "fill a gap in scientific studies around the comic world".
Historietas is supported by these two vicerectorships and by the vicerectorship of Research and Transfer too. Marina Gutiérrez showed her gratitude for the opportunity to participate in the project, and pointed out that "the magazine collects articles written by students of all Andalusian Universities, as well as external research studies".
David Almorza, on the other hand, expressed his total support to this publication, which "follows the anglo-saxon model as it proposes a scientific study of the comic world, and its application and pedagogical, historical and cultural use". One of the articles of this annual publication presentes, precisely, the educational uses of the historical comic in the period of the Independence War and the Constitution of 1812.
The contents of this first issue cover four topics that show the diverse uses that comics can have: education through historical comic, stereotypes in American and Spanish comic, as well as a complete bibliographic introduction to erotic comics.
According to the coordinator of the magazine, "this format does not exist in Spain", therefore it is the only publication of this type at a national level. Historietas - he added - does not look for profit but for its maximum diffusion. The aim is for it to be accesible worlwide, just as any other scientific publication".
Historietas will soon be digitally published through the web of the Area of Library and Archive of the UCA. Those interested can request a printed version in firstname.lastname@example.org. Moreover, the publication will be distributed in the network of all Spanish university libraries. It will be presented in Seville and in the Salón del Comic [Comic Fair] of Barcelona and Madrid next week.
