Call for proposals: March 15th deadline
A hundred years ago, Ireland was marked by a series of events that proved fundamental to the making of its modern memory.

A subsequent history of national foundation and decolonization can be traced in part to this moment of Irish history, when Ireland's struggles proved paradigmatic of what was to come in other places.

Scientists recently found that migration was a main factor that shaped human behavior (Don Jones, Nature News). According to John Hines, the most extensive human migration took place in the early Middle Ages, while other large-scale migrations include the Puritan migration, the great Serb migrations, the migrations of the Middle Passage, and the nineteenth and twentieth century migrations of impoverished Europeans to the Americas. Apart from with poverty and religion, migration is also often associated with war; climate change becomes a factor that forces people to become migrants. Migration is a matter of geographic movement (diaspora), but also of human psychology (e.g. un-homing, longing, nostalgia, depression); of human rights (e.g.

CFP: SANEjournal: sequential art narrative in education 4.1: "The Singularity Plurality"

While many authors of books and articles on the subject of comics and education integrate a diversity of sources into their works, as well they should, what happens when authors focus on the work or works of a singular presence? How can the writing or writings of one scholar inform how we teach comics or teach with them, or how we should do those things?

The editor of SANEjournal: sequential art narrative in education is seeking articles that examine the works and theories of individuals in relation to how their ideas can or do shape the integration of comics into educational settings, the teaching of comics, and the possible futures of such.
