Place Convention Center

 

 

The Comics
Studies Conference invites proposals for scholarly presentations, book talks,
slide talks, roundtables, professional-focus panels, workshops and other panels
centered on sequential art and comics in any form (graphic novels, comic
strips, comic books, manga, web comics, etc.), comics-centric works, or
adaptations of comics materials, genres, or figures into other media for its
first annual meeting, held in conjunction with the Chicago Comic and
Entertainment Expo (C2E2).

 

Proposals will
be refereed by juried review by the Institute for Comics Studies Conference Board.

 

Proposals that concern comics produced in or otherwise connected to
Chicago, and proposals by Chicago-area faculty, scholars, and comics professionals
are especially encouraged. 
Professionals
are encouraged to participate as panel members and respondents, and to submit
proposals for book talks.  
Additionally ICS will provide assistance with recruiting professionals
for participation in CSC panels.

 

The Comics
Studies Conference represents the Institute for Comics Studies’ mission to
promote the study, understanding, recognition, and cultural legitimacy of
comics and to support the discussion and dissemination of this study and
understanding via public venues.
