CFP: Picture Books and Children's Comics: Semiotics of Text and Image (9/15/06; NEMLA, 3/1/06-3/4/06)

38th Annual NeMLA Convention, 1-4 Mar. 2007, Baltimore, MD
Panel: Picture Books and Children's Comics: Semiotics of Text and Image
Chair: Vanessa Raney, Michigan State University

If we follow the argument that comics are for children, then what
distinguishes them from picture books? In the last decade, a newer focus on
the semiotics of picture books has begun to inform scholarship on comics.

Yet, for comics specifically written for children, do these reflect similar
patterns as found in picture books? If not, where do children's comics
diverge to be grouped along with comics intended for adults?

Children and Performance in Early Modernity
Renaissance Society of America Conference, Miami 2007

The Duke Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies is sponsoring a
session on children in the contexts of early modern performance. We are
seeking abstracts for papers that consider any aspect of this subject --
court culture, children's companies, public performances, and private
environments. Ideally we would like to assemble a session that touches
on the implications and conditions of child actors from a variety of
cultural settings and in a variety of modes (theater, music, dance, etc.).
