scholarly conference at DENVER COMIC CON Denver, Co
May 23‐25, 2015
500 word abstracts for papers, panels, and roundtables, offering a critical approach on comics are being accepted for a scholarly conference at DENVER COMIC CON DENVER, CO May 23‐25, 2015
The standard length of a comic book is 22 pages. What comes next? Page 23. Through Page 23’s LitCon (formerly ROMOCOCO), comics scholars establish comic books and graphic novels as important, canonical texts that echo far beyond their final panels.
Teaching comics, creating academic analyses, publishing the work of fellow comics scholars ‐ this isn’t a revolution; it’s just what’s next.
We seek abstracts from all disciplinary and theoretical perspectives related to not only comics and graphic novels, but also gaming, television and film, anime, action figure studies—any pop culture topic is welcome! We’re also especially interested in panels centered on pop culture pedagogy, aimed at current teachers at all levels.
Editorial, interdisciplinary, and creative proposals are also welcome, along with traditional academic papers.
Multimedia equipment will be available to all presenters, and we encourage and prefer visually engaging presentations.
Page 23 LitCon has no registration fee and acceptance includes a three-day pass to Denver Comic Con.
Proposals due February 13, 2015
