Conference on Comics

Date: May 2, 2009
Venue: Saskatchewan, Canada

Comics have become an important cultural vehicle, as can be attested by the numerous movie adaptations, the hundreds of manga titles that are translated yearly and the recent trend to consider graphic novels for literary prizes. Scholars from any discipline are invited to send proposals for papers on any matters regarding comics: Canadian identity in comics, comics for education, the psychology of super-heroes, etc.

Please submit by e-mail a 250 words proposal by January 15th, 2009, along with a request for audio-visual equipment.
