100 to 200 word abstracts for papers, presentations, panels, and poster sessions taking a critical or historical perspective on comics (juxtaposed images in sequence) are being accepted for a meeting of scholars and professionals.

We seek proposals from a broad range of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives and welcome the participation of academic and independent scholars.  We also encourage
the involvement of professionals from all areas of the comics industry, including
creators, editors, publishers, retailers, distributors, and journalists.

The CAC is presently scheduled to take place in person, and presenters should plan to attend physically.

The CAC is designed to bring together comics scholars, professionals, critics, and historians to engage in discussion of the comics medium in a forum that includes the public.

Proposals due March 1, 2022
