100 to 200 word abstracts for papers, presentations, panels, and poster sessions taking a critical or historical perspective on comics (juxtaposed images in sequence) are being accepted for a meeting of scholars and professionals at WonderCon, held next spring in Anaheim, CA, from March 29-31. We seek proposals from a broad range of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives and welcome the participation of academic and independent scholars. We also encourage the involvement of professionals from all areas of the comics industry, including creators, editors, publishers, retailers, distributors, and journalists. The Conference is designed to bring together comics scholars, professionals, critics, and historians to engage in discussion of the comics medium in a forum that includes the public. Proposals are due December 1. Please submit all proposals to http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BZ8XV9N. For more information, please contact Dr. Kathleen McClancy at comicsartsconference@gmail.com.
