An international conference will be held at Leeds Beckett University to celebrate one of the most recognised comic characters of the 20th century – Tintin. The comicbook series, which follows the roving reporter and his dog Snowy, and its creator Hergé will be celebrated at the two-day conference at the university, 13-14 June 2018.

The Tintin conference is being organised by Leeds Beckett’s Northern Film School and Leeds Art Research Centre. The conference will discuss the popularity of Tintin, the relationship between Tintin and Hergé, and such areas as friendship, audience appreciation, masculinity, sexuality, and legacy.

Keynote speakers will be world-renowned Tintinologist, Michael Farr and Professor Laurence Grove of Glasgow University, producer of a new documentary about the Tintin adventure /The Black Island/.
