Comica Symposium 2011 - Transitions 2: New Directions in Comics Studies

updated: 
Monday, March 21, 2011 - 7:19pm
Birkbeck, University of London - School of Arts

Transitions 2 is a one day symposium devoted to promoting new research into comics in all their forms. Rather than restricting itself to a specific theme, the symposium will highlight research from postgraduate students and early career lecturers bringing together different perspectives and methodoogies, whether cultural, historical, or formal, thereby mapping new trends and providing a space for dialogue and further collaboration to emerge. By thinking about comics across different disciplines, the intention is to spark debate and address a wide spectrum of questions.

We welcome abstracts of 250-300 words for twenty minute papers on topics as diverse as, but not limited to:

Sunday, March 20, 2011 - 3:17pm
Patricia Rae/Modernist Studies Association (MSA)

"In our age, the idea of intellectual liberty is under attack from two directions. On the one hand are its theoretical enemies, the apologists of totalitarianism, and on the other its immediate, practical enemies, monopoly and bureaucracy. Any writer or journalist who wants to retain his integrity finds himself thwarted by the general drift of society rather than by active persecution."

George Orwell, "The Prevention of Literature" (1946)

Proposals are invited for a possible MSA session on the subject of modernism and totalitarianism.
