Digital Humanities Back When Pluto Was a Planet (Berlin transmediale, 29 Jan - 3 Feb 2013)

I am seeking theoretical, scholarly, contemplative papers as well as purposeful moments of silence on the theme of Digital Humanities Back When Pluto Was a Planet for a proposed panel discussion at the 2013 transmediale festival in Berlin.

The theme of this year's transmediale is "Back When Pluto Was a Planet," calling to mind how definitions represent larger frameworks of understanding. The downgrading of Pluto's position in the solar system reflects how what seems to be a stable network can be quickly recontextualized.

Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) 44th Annual Convention, March 21-24, 2013

Comic books, graphic novels and webcomics generally combine words and images to create narratives. Perhaps we can see them, therefore, as monstrous: beasts that combine the elements of verbal and visual, narrative and static communication forms. Like a monster composed of pieces of other animals, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This panel will examine a social understanding of comics forms and the kinds of literacies required to accept and interpret them. Abstracts of 300 words to; Deadline: September 30, 2012. Include: name, affiliation, anticipated a/v requirements.
