Contributions are invited for a collection of original essays that explore race and blackness in American comic books, comic strips, and editorial cartoons from the turn of the twentieth century through the industry’s Golden Age in the 1940s and 1950s. The historical perception of black people in comic art has long been tied to caricatured images of indecipherable minstrels, witch doctors, and brutal savages, yet archives reveal a more racially complex narrative and aesthetic landscape, one that was enriched by the debates among comics artists, writers, editors, and readers about how blackness could be expressed on the page.

Shaping Men: Identity and Masculinity in Italian Culture

updated: 
Tuesday, July 23, 2019 - 9:52pm

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

What makes a man a man? How is masculinity shaped by spaces, times, languages, and cultures? How are men expected to behave in public and in private? In addition to addressing these questions, the panel would like to explore the concept of masculinity and how this is constructed by social contexts and human relationships. To this day, numerous men are profoundly impacted by adolescent experiences, peer pressure, and expectations based on “male gender roles.” This session invites contributions about literature, theater, film, and other symbolic productions in Italy as related to the complex topic of masculinity.
