CFP: Panel on Comics at the Louisville Conference on Literature & Culture Since 1900 (Sept 9; Feb 20-22)

CFP for a
Panel on Comics
at the Louisville Conference on Literature & Culture Since 1900

The 42nd annual Louisville Conference on Literature & Culture Since 1900 will be held at the University of Louisville, February 20-22, 2014. The Conference is generally made up of presentations of critical papers on topics that address literary works published since 1900, and/or their relationship with other Arts and disciplines (film, journalism, opera, music, pop culture, painting, architecture, law, etc).

For the 2014 conference I would like to organize a panel (or panels) with a focus on the intersections of comics and literature. To that end, I invite proposals on a wide range of topics, and drawing on various disciplines and methodologies, that deal with comics and the literary in broad terms.

Please send proposals for a 20-minute presentation to bpostema@ryerson.ca by Monday September 9, 2013. Submissions should include a 300-word abstract (preferably in doc format) and a cover page according to the conference’s specifications. Submitter's cover page is to include:
  • Name (as it will appear in the program) 
  • Address (preferably home address)
  • E-mail address (necessary to confirm your acceptance)
  • Telephone number
  • Academic affiliation (if applicable)
  • Title of paper/work (as it will appear in the program)
  • National origin/genre of work discussed (please be specific)
  • Personal biographical note (100-150 words)
