The comics world has been hugely influenced by, and in a large part shaped by, Japanese manga. Thus, manga is the center of many discussions about Asian comics in the United States. However, in Comics Studies less attention is given to comics from other Asian countries. This panel seeks to widen the discussion about comics to bring attention to Asian comics outside of Japan, and to interrogate the many visual forms and thematic concerns of Asian comics. Papers on comics from any Asian country other than Japan are welcome; papers must be in English but may discuss comics in any language. This call is for a non-guaranteed panel at the 2019 Modern Language Association Convention in Chicago from January 3-6, 2019.

Special Issue, LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory
This panel welcomes submissions that explore how popular adventure fiction/boy’s books of the long nineteenth century were used as agents of social change. While often viewed as works for adolescents, such novels played subversive roles in dismantling traditional ideas and establishing new cultural norms. We are especially interested in papers that explore novels set in locations outside the colonial center that worked to challenge British assumptions about education/the educational system. Potential authors could include Joseph Conrad, Robert Louis Stevenson, H.G. Wells, or Edgar Rice Burroughs as well as lesser-known authors such as Louis Becke or authors popularized through translation, such as Jules Verne.
CFP: Teaching with Material Texts Participants in this interactive poster session will demonstrate classroom lessons and/or assignments that interrogate material-textual objects using those same objects.
This is a guaranteed session sponsored by MLA's Forum on Bibliography and Scholarly Editing. 250-word abstract due to Ryan Cordell (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 15 March 2018.
