Upcoming Special Issue of Modern Fiction Studies

Graphic Narratives
Guest Editors: Marianne DeKoven and Hillary L. Chute

Deadline for Submission: 1 March 2006

This special issue seeks essays on book-length works composed in the medium of comics. The emergence of graphic narratives-also called "graphic novels"-combines a sophisticated and experimental awareness of form with a powerful political awareness of comics as a mass medium. The book publication of Art Spiegelman's _Maus: A Survivor's Tale_ brought graphic narratives to the academy; in the two decades since the publication of the first volume of Maus, the field of graphic narratives has expanded significantly.
