Christopher Roman, Ph.D.
Professor and Graduate Studies Coordinator
I wear a couple of different hats being a professor and graduate studies coordinator. My research and teaching are in comics studies and queer theory. I get to write about comics and graphic novels. I teach comics and graphic novels, as well as, graduate seminars in queer theory and queer comics. As graduate coordinator, I help graduate students through the process of their degrees. No two days are the same.
WORKED AT KENT STATE SINCE:
LIKES MOST ABOUT KENT STATE:
The diversity of students and faculty; the opportunity to see students make connections and forge ahead with new ideas, the ability to introduce students to new ideas and concepts that allow them to approach the world in new ways.
FAVORITE MEMORY WHILE AT KENT STATE:
My honors colloquium on queer memoir was a year-long honors course. The community we built in that class was amazing. Students from that class are still in touch with me to this day.
