 Seth, born Gregory Gallant, is one of the seminal alternative cartoonists. His comic Palookaville, which began in 1991, continues today; issue 23 (summer 2017) will complete the serialization of Clyde Fans, twenty years in the making and arguably Seth’s magnum opus. He has produced the seminal It’s a Good Life, If You Don’t Weaken (1996; originally serialized in Palookaville), Wimbledon Green (2005), George Sprott (1894-1975) (2009; originally serialized in the New York Times Magazine), and The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists (2011), in addition to numerous shorter strips and illustrations.

Sewanee Medieval Colloquium
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, July 27, 2017

The Sewanee Medieval Colloquium invites proposals for panel themes engaging with forms of law, order, disorder and resistance in all aspects of medieval cultures. These sub-themes address a particular aspect of our general theme, and could be the basis for either one or two panels. As a rule of thumb, panel themes should be broad enough to encourage numerous applicants, and interdisciplinary proposals are particularly encouraged.
