St Louis, MO
October 17-18, 2015
Dear colleagues, scholars, and friends:
We invite submissions for proposed papers, presentations, and panel sessions related to comics and graphic narratives for inclusion within the academic mini-conference held in conjunction with Project: Comic Con, a locally organized, family friendly celebration of comics, cartoons, anime, and pop culture in St Louis, MO.
As this year’s theme is “Women in Comics,” we are especially interested in potential presentations, panels, workshops, or creative sessions that relate with or speak directly to the changing role of women in comics as characters, creators, and consumers. We also welcome proposals that deal specifically with works related to or produced by our anticipated roster of guests.
More information concerning the Project: Comic Con guest list, programming, and accommodations can be found here:
All accepted presenters receive a two-day pass to Project: Comic Con. All presentations are open to anyone with a pass.
As our conference is also meant to encourage popular discussion and debate, we encourage and prefer visually engaging and accessible presentations.
Please submit abstracts and proposals of no more than 300 words and a brief biographical statement no later than 31st August, 2015. Please send all materials as Word attachments to Daniel Yezbick at DYezbick@stlcc.edu.
