Critical Approaches to Comics Artists at the University Press of Mississippi

Lynda Barry: Seriously Multitalented is a proposed volume in the new seriesCritical Approaches to Comics Artists at the University Press of Mississippi. Hillary Chute correctly labels Barry, now author of 18 books, as "one of America's seriously multitalented artists" (57, Outside the Box); Susan E. Kirtley describes her work as "uncompromising and multifaceted" (188, Lynda Barry: Girlhood Through the Looking Glass).

Toys, a celebrated part of childhood and often key figures in children's imaginative play, have a fantastic history of heroism in print and on film. Open to examinations of literature, comics, and film, the collection seeks to be a repository of original essays that analyze the roles toys play as protectors of the child(ren) they love, as heroes of their own stories, or as champions for the greater good.

Miserable Violence, Violent Resistance

I am looking for 1-2 more panelists to fill out a panel proposal for the 2014 American Studies Association conference (http://www.theasa.net/submit_a_proposal). Drawing on the conference theme of "The (Re)production of Misery and the Ways of Resistance," this panel proposes to explore how performances of violence—that is, violence that is meant to be seen—can work both to reproduce social miseries and also to offer methods for resisting the political and social systems that institutionalize the conditions of misery. Possible themes may include (but are certainly not limited to):
