CFP: [20th] MLA 2009: British graphic novels and comics

CFP: MLA, Philadelphia 2009: British graphic novels and comics.

Proposals are invited on British graphic novels and comics.

According to the New York Times, Britain finally “embrace(d) the graphic novel” in 2007,
supposedly many years behind the rest of the reading world. The British graphic novel industry is
perceived to be dwarfed by its American and continental counterparts, despite the success of
Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, publishing houses like Jonathan Cape and the patronage of Posy
Simmonds by The Guardian. In what ways is it appropriate to talk about a distinctly British
tradition of sequential art?

CFP: MLA 2009 Special Session

We seek proposals for presentations taking diverse approaches to the
cosmopolitan novel--its definitions, narratives, and changing
cartographies in the past/present/future.

Proposals focused on individual authors/novels as well as
historical/theoretical approaches are welcome. We especially invite
approaches that challenge/interrogate dominant paradigms(e.g.
postnational, metropolitan, or neoliberal cosmopolitanisms).

Convergences / Divergences : Au carrefour des idées

La Société des Études Supérieures du Département d'Études Françaises
(SESDEF) de l'Université de Toronto lance un appel à communications aux
étudiants de maîtrise et de doctorat en études françaises. Le colloque se
tiendra les 8 et 9 mai 2009 à Toronto, campus centre-ville.

Cette année, le comité organisateur recherche des communications de vingt
minutes portant sur le thème : Convergences / divergences : Au carrefour
des idées. Que représentent ces notions? Quelles en sont les enjeux? Est-
ce que les convergences entraînent forcément des divergences? Ou, au
contraire, s'agit-il de concepts qui s’excluent mutuellement?
