The senior researcher focuses on ‘African’ cartoons and comics (bande dessinée), made in Africa and Europe, as a powerful mode of social and political criticism through artistic creativity. This field is concerned with postcolonial settings in which artists produce cartoons, comics and fanzines to narrate, depict and criticise the social realities of daily life, the economic crisis, migration and politics. How do comic artivists and art shape social and political perceptions and realities? The senior researcher works within the comic art world in Cameroon and France, and follows artists who migrated from Africa to Europe.
