Ashley was awarded a 2016 Richter Scholarship to explore the narrative structure of the bande dessinée, in particular the intersection of visual art and language in the bande dessinée. She will study the narrative structure of the bande dessinée in the national library of France, as well as in archives. Ashley plans to interview scholars and authors of the bande dessinée.
