This MLA special session panel invites papers that examine how contemporary South Asian comics respond to political crises or structural inequity. How do South Asian comics represent gender, caste, class and religious violence/oppression? Possible topics include but are not limited to the representation of marginalized groups' struggle for justice, vigilante heroes, the nation-state's propaganda machinery, etc. Please send 300 word abstracts and brief bio by 15 March, 2017 to Anuja Madan (email@example.com).
I am inviting one- to two-page proposals for essays in the medieval volume (500-1450) in the forthcoming Bloomsbury series, A Cultural History of Youth.

3. Education and Work
4. Leisure and Play
6. Gender, Sexuality and the Body
7. Belief and Ideology
8. Authority and Agency
9. War and Conflict
10. Towards a Global History
Only chapters 6 and 7 are spoken for presently.

Connecting the Dots: Museums and Comics
In comes I, says Robbin to Bobbin. There were three Straw Bears and the little one said, rough music! Will the Phantom of the Opera feature in the Scottish play? This cold night will turn us all to fools and morris dancers: hocus pocus, and Faustus must be damned. There were three caskets, and only one contained the liar’s whetstone. Oh yes, there is a doctor to be found at the Hawk’s Well. Out, little spear, if herein thou be! What’s the time, Widow Twankey, at the Common Riding of the Valkyries? A knot, a knot! Waly waly wallflower in the eye of the sun, up and down and around the town. There were three oranges, my true love to see, but ’tis the foul fiend Flibbertigibbet. Surely he is a Puritan, for he has cast out Jack in the Green.
