January 9 - 12, 2020
The Association for the Study of American Indian Literatures (ASAIL) invites submissions for a special panel on Indigenous comics and graphic novels to be presented at the 2020 MLA Convention taking place January 9-12 in Seattle, Washington.
We invite submissions on Indigenous comics from around the world, including collections like Moonshot: The Indigenous Comics Collection, Sovereign Traces, or Deer Woman: An Anthology. Papers could focus on any of the many comics and graphic novels coming from First Nation writers around Canada as well. Presenters could also focus on Indigenous comics institutions, including publishing presses (High Water Press, Native Realties Press), Indigenous led and focused comic shops (Red Planet Books and Comics), or the annual Indigenous Comic Con held in Albuquerque, NM.
Please send 300-word abstracts, brief (1-2 pp.) CVs, and AV Requests to Jeremy M. Carnes (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee) at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 30, 2019.
Selected Panelists will be notified by April 2, 2019 and must be members of the Modern Language Association by April 7, 2019. Information on membership is available on the MLA website: http://mla.org/.
