Helenistic Encomium: A Reflection on Comics and Rhetoric by Jason Helms

This video reflection starts in a presentation on comics at the Thomas R. Watson Conference last October, which prompted the author to explore the etymology of cosmos and comos through an alternate reading of Gorgias' Encomium of Helen. The author then works with comos, as revelry, to offer thoughts on comics as a form of multimodal composition and its use in the classroom.
