Announcement: Membership of the International Bande Dessinée Society and European Comic Art

From Liverpool University Press.

Membership of the
International Bande Dessinée Society
and European Comic Art

The IBDS (International Bande Dessinée Society) is a forum for scholarly exchange on all aspects of the bande dessinée, or French-language comic strip.  It welcomes all critical approaches, be they historical, sociological, political, literary, linguistic or other.

The Society largely, but not exclusively, draws its membership from English-speaking countries, thereby offering an alternative viewpoint to that of the thriving French-language BD community. The Society was officially founded in 2001, again following a conference in Glasgow, and its work has continued at further conferences in Leicester, Manchester and London.

In 2011, members of the IBDS can again receive the journal European Comic Art as part of a special membership package.

Published by Liverpool University Press twice a year, European Comic Art was the first English-language scholarly publication devoted to the study of European-language graphic novels, comic strips, comic books and caricature.

The journal is hosted online by Metapress:

Membership fees for 2011 are £25, please contact Clare Hooper at the below address to update your membership.
