Good news, everyone!

As Thom teased back in September, the secret GJRA-cave has been going through something of a makeover recently. Now that the menacing academic super-villian known only as ‘Marking’ has been vanquished, I would like to resolve this cliffhanger and present the new GJRA Governance Committee:

  • Lists Officer: Thomas Giddens (St Mary’s University, Twickenham)
  • Web Officer (Social Media): Ashley Pearson (Griffith University)
  • Web Officer (Blog): David Yuratich (Royal Holloway, University of London)
  • Grid Officer: Thomas Giddens 
  • Events Officers: Golnar Nabizadeh (University of Western Australia) and Mitch Travis (University of Leeds)
  • Memo Officers: Simon Russell ( and Dale Mitchell (Griffith University)

Of course, a list of names – even if we pretended that they were aliases for international diamond thieves (and please be reassured that they are not) – does not rank high on the list of ‘exciting things to be read on the internet’. Fear not.

In the coming weeks, we will be updating the site with short bios of each officer. I hope to bring you some short posts about everyone’s work, in addition to continuing our the GJRA’s solemn quest to interrogate the intersections between comics and related media, law, justice, and much more.
