What is the future of illustration studies?
What can comics scholars learn from animation studies and vice versa?
Do illustrated books or graphic novels resist the supposed obsolescence of the book?
What do pictures want (now)?
These and related questions will be explored at the Illustration, Comics, and Animation Conference at Dartmouth College to be held April 19 – 21 2013.
Scholars interested in the illustrated image in all of its mediated guises are invited to participate in this interdisciplinary conference. Nearly all illustrated or drawn 'texts' are eligible for consideration:
*comics and graphic novels
*cartoons and animated films
