The Canadian Society for Studies in the Graphic Narrative has four main purposes:
- To promote--through pedagogy, research, cataloguing, and community development--all
forms of expression falling under the rubric of graphic narrative.
- To provide support for members who wish to conduct research, develop
pedagogical methodologies, and organize events relating to, or having to do with,
the creation, dissemination, and interpretation of graphic narratives.
- To promote reciprocal relationships between communities and academic
institutions wanting to engage in the creation, dissemination, and interpretation
of graphic narratives.
- To foster sustained investigation into the cultural impact of graphic narratives.
