CFP: 'Doonesbury': critical and cultural essays. An edited collection (Manchester University Press)

Thursday, May 2, 2013 - 9:29am
Manchester Metropolitan University/Manchester University Press

Doonesbury: critical and cultural essays. An edited collection (MUP).

CALL FOR PAPERS.

For over four decades G.B. Trudeau's Doonesbury strip has reflected and refracted America's national narratives, atomising and coalescing them within the strip format to a global audience. Chronicling, dramatising and defining key debates of the late-twentieth and early-twenty-first centuries, the Pulitzer prize-winning Doonesbury has also intervened in and shaped their trajectory. Using and subverting the narrative strip form as a prism through which to explore, catalogue, landmark and define its contemporary moment, Doonesbury represents a significant artistic, cultural, comedic and critical achievement.
