We are excited to announce that ROMOCOCO 2014 is now officially a part of Denver Comic Con! The literary conference will run concurrently with the comic book convention, from June 13-15, 2014, in Denver, Colorado. We’re accepting proposals for papers, panels, roundtables, and hour-long individual presentations from academic and independent scholars. We seek abstracts from all disciplinary and theoretical perspectives related to comic books and graphic novels. Editorial, pedagogical, interdisciplinary, and creative proposals are welcome, along with traditional academic papers. Multimedia equipment will be available to all presenters, and we encourage and prefer visually engaging presentations.

Plans for an essay collection from ROMOCOCO past and present are also underway, so stay tuned for information on publication possibilities!

Deadline for submission is March 15, 2014. Proposals of up to 500 words, a brief personal statement, and any questions should be emailed to Jonathan Alexandratos and Tracy Bealer at romococo@denvercomiccon.com.
