Although he is a Professor in the Department of English at the University of Calgary, Bart Beaty never took a course on Canadian literature - or any other kind of literature, actually. A scholar specializing in the study of comics, he is the author, editor, or translator of sixteen books. The blog for his most recent book, The Greatest Comic Book of All Time (with Benjamin Woo) can be found here, and the blog for his current SSHRC-funded research project, What Were Comics?, can be found here. In 2014 he blogged about Bob Dylan every day for a year. His CanLit claim to fame is probably the fact that he once chauffeured Margaret Atwood around Calgary for an entire day. You can find him on Twitter @bartbeaty or email him here.
