In his 1989 study (
)Comic Books as History: The Narrative Art of Jack Jackson, Art
Spiegelman,and Harvey Pekar, Joseph Witek broke new ground by arguing
that the graphic novel, through its fusion of text and illustration, is
uniquely situated to relate history. For this panel, I am soliciting
proposals that either explore significant historical moments*Witek*s
study focuses on such events as the Holocaust and Texas independence*or
interpret *history* more liberally. Of particular interest are
proposals dealing with comic books from/about the 1980s.
Please submit 250-word abstracts by April 16 to Rick Iadonisi.
