Biography

Kevin is interested in how identities of mental health are constructed through mediated narratives. His master’s thesis examined portrayals of mental illness in cartoon series, with special attention to the roll of animation in the telling of mental health stories. His research focuses on how narratives presented through various media outlets create public conceptions of mental wellbeing.
