Graphic Recording Announcement!

Graphic recording by Sam Hester of Krista McCracken and Skylee Storm Hogan-Stacey’s keynote: “Decolonial Archival Futures: Reflections & Practice. Recorded on March 18, 2022.

In keeping with our theme of ‘History in Conversation,’ we are also thinking about how we record and share the Colloquium’s history. To this end, we are thrilled to be joined once again by graphic recorder Sam Hester for our Closing Keynote.

A leader in the emerging field of graphic recording, Sam Hester completed a graphic recording for the 2022 Underhill Colloquium (pictured above), and we are so excited to welcome Sam again! Sam creates visual stories that transform dry meeting minutes into eye-catching tools for engagement. Sam’s work draws upon deep listening skills, a unique graphic style, a passion for community-building… and a lot of markers. A longtime advocate for comics as a medium for serious storytelling, Sam is a contributor to comics journalism, comics in academia, and the Graphic Medicine movement. Sam writes and draws comics about real-life local stories in her hometown, Calgary, in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
