This one-day symposium welcomes papers, which negotiate the topic of diversity in animation, games, comics and illustration. We intend to embrace academic and practice-based presentations from diverse angles. The examples below just provide some examples of possible topics but are by no means intended to be limiting in terms of thematic scope.

The symposium invites abstracts for 20-minute presentations and welcomes proposals on all aspects of diversity in animation/film, games, comics (graphic novels) and illustration. Proposals, which relate to the symposium topic will be preferred.

* Diversity investigated from the perspective of animation, games, comics or illustration studies.
