Biff! Bam!! Crikey!!! Comics as Art, Entertainment and Design

Comics are an important and vital part of popular culture, shaping the early reading experiences of many children, as well as commanding an increasing body of adult readers. They can offer slapstick fun or serious literary themes and have spread into every imaginable genre (comedy, horror, war, adventure, autobiography, documentary and so on). Comics therefore have the potential to be both popular entertainment and provocative art, and have a profound influence on various other media and art-forms, including film, animation, computer games, and television.

COMICS AND GRAPHIC NOVELS
30th Annual New Jersey College English Association
Spring Conference
Saturday, March 31, 2007
Seton Hall University, South Orange, NJ

Over the past twenty years, the "graphic novel" has become a
mainstay--if second-class citizen--of the popular media. But can we
say the form is properly understood when two of the most highly regarded
"Graphic Novels"--Spiegelman's Maus and Satrapi's Persepolis--are not
"novels" at all? This panel seeks papers challenging conventional
perspectives of comics and graphic novels. Papers on all topics are
welcome, but considerations of non-genre works are encouraged.

Intertexuality: Conversations Between the Sheets
English Graduate Student Conference
The University of Tulsa
March 30-31, 2007

Call for papers and panels:

"Conversations Between the Sheets" is concerned with the direct and/or indirect discourse between texts that takes place when authors (whoever an author may be—from a single writer or coauthors to a community of editors, publishers, booksellers, etc.) interact with each other—alluding, referencing, paraphrasing, quoting, borrowing, sharing, stealing, extending, challenging, or opposing each others' ideas. Whether it is in the form of support, abuse, or simply recognition of ideas between writers, texts converse with each other.
