What's new with Stu! 

An exciting new exhibition at Supanova Comic Con and Gaming this November 2019!

I am pleased to announce that I am curating an exhibition of retro pop culture of the 40s, 50s, and 60s at Supanova Comic Con and Gaming at the Adelaide Showgrounds this coming November 2 and 3.

This will be my second exhibition at Supanova in as many years and I look forward to presenting the visiting public with a journey to the golden age of the genre!

My exhibition at Supanova in 2018 offered pop culture aficionados a unique opportunity to view rare European comic book literature and memorabilia from the 1930s to present day. 

Next stage of my national speaking tour announced!

I have received a booking as a keynote speaker at Go Atomic Pop Culture Festival in Sydney this coming January 18 and 19.

I'll be undertaking two presentations each day...

A new presentation about Bettie Page and her association with photographer; Bunny Yeager as well as Bettie's influence in a global society, including comic book literature in the US and Europe.

Tintin Unmasked; a thesis investigation of the creator of Tintin, and the controversies surrounding his career as a comic strip illustrator during the Second World War.

Bilingual comic book adventure coming in 2020!

The Adventures of Paris and Freddy is a bilingual comic book series and is written in the French and English languages.

Paris and Freddy share a unique gift in being able to read each other's thoughts.

It's where Scooby Doo meets the X-Files, Buffy, and the Big Bang Theory with the hint of a classic Tintin adventure!

Follow the adventures of Paris, Freddy, and their gang of cosplayers as they foil crimes and uncover mysteries!

The first adventure The Fleurieu Fiasco is set for release in 2020!

Included to the Alliance Française anniversary book! 

The Alliance Française was founded in Paris in 1883 and is an international organisation with a focus to promote the French language and culture around the world.

There are 850 centres in 137 countries, including each state of Australia.

As part of the commemoration to celebrate the 130th anniversary of the Alliance Française, a book was produced to offer a history of the organisation and a focus about many of the centres around the world, and I am honoured to be included in the book representing the Alliance Française here in Adelaide!

The passage in the book tells of my studies at the centre prior to, and during my studies at University.

The book is now on sale at all centres around the world!

The motto of the Alliance is 'learn French live French' and the centre provided me with a solid foundation enabling me to complete degrees in my chosen field of language teaching and culture studies.

Mega Toy Fair - Adelaide Showgrounds June 1 and 2

Coucou!

The Goyder Pavilion at the Adelaide Showgrounds was the venue for this year's Mega Toy and Rare Collectable Fair on June 1 and 2.

The event attracts industry professionals from around Australia to exhibit and sell their product to the greater Adelaide Community. 

I enjoyed a most successful weekend of marketing my upcoming speaking tour to visitors at the event as well as my association with the Tintin Shop in Singapore.

Lecturer at the University of Adelaide - May 29

Most appreciative thanks to Professor Ghil'ad Zuckermann for inviting me to lecture to students of applied linguistics today at the University of Adelaide.

Today's lecture offered students an insight to Constructed Languages (Conlangs) that have been created for the entertainment industry.

The Klingon, Vulcan, Na'vi, Dothraki, and High Valyrian languages were discussed as well as an interactive workshop conducted on the Klingon Language offering basic knowledge in the language such as greetings and introduction; unique characteristics; its significance/influence in a global society; and information about where it might be possible to continue to learn the language in Adelaide or online.

I'll be presenting a series of Conlang workshops to the general public during National Science Week this coming August.
