Book Project-Graphic Novels and Libraries

updated: 
Tuesday, March 24, 2009 - 5:07pm
Robert G. Weiner Texas Tech University Library

Call for Papers--Graphic Novels in Libraries and Archives: Ideas and Issues.

Graphic Novel publishing has exploded in the last decade. While, during the mid-1990s, it might have been possible for even a modestly budgeted library to acquire much of the published Graphic Novel output, now it is almost impossible even for libraries with big budgets to afford EVERYTHING published in this format. What was once considered a "cult" of devoted Graphic Novel readers and fans is now a part of the mainstream of readers. Graphic Novels is the one area of publishing that continues to grow year by year.

But what sort of sense is constitutive of the everydayness? Surely this sense includes not sense so much as sensuousness, . . . a knowledge that lies as much in the objects and spaces of observation as in the body and mind of the observer.
– Michael Taussig, "Tactility and Distraction"

As the citizen of the nation becomes the consumer of the multinational corporation, our roles as inhabitants of space become increasingly complicated. Our literature, our faith, our bodies all speak to the different ways that we find to occupy the shifting territories of the postmodern landscape. Looking both to the past and future can help us to discover the real and imagined ways our cultures can develop in more richly and defined ways.

"Upon those who step into the same rivers, different and again different waters flow."

Over 2500 years have passed, but Heraclitos' wisdom remains salient. None would deny that there are dominant movements and perspectives; yet, every scholar must admit that the topography of the discipline is in continual flux. Each year generates a new approach and a new trend – a new branch from the old.
