The Northeast Modern Language Association continues to increase the number of presentations and sessions focused on studies of comics and graphic narratives. Its recent convention in Washington, DC, featured discussions about:
- transnational aesthetics in comics and graphic narratives
- superheroes and the immigrant experience
- presentations on Italian and German comics
- numerous presentations on anime and manga
- self-representation of young women in comics
- a seminar on translation and adaptation in comics
- adapting stage plays as comics
NeMLA will host its 51st Annual Convention in Boston, Massachusetts, in March 2020. The convention seeks session proposals for paper panels, roundtables, workshops, and creative sessions. Proposals are due April 29, 2019, at cfplist.com/nemla with a free CFP List NeMLA account. The 2020 convention theme is „Shaping and Sharing Identities: Spaces, Places, Languages, and Cultures,” relevant for the kind of work comics and graphic narratives accomplish to represent and create locations and allow the development of personal identity.
