Most of us remember what scared us as children: the bumps in the night, the dark alleys, and the monsters, ghouls, and ghosts brimmed with the potential to terrify. The thrill of dodging the terror that waited in the shadows fuels many horror fanatics to return to the theatres, bookstands, and now podcasts to relive youthful feelings of dread. It should be no surprise, then, that youth horror media is pervasive. From Goosebumps and the upcoming release of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark to Nickelodeon’s Are You Afraid of the Dark? and the CBBC’s Creeped Out, there is an abundance of media that introduces children to the horror genre.

CFP: Epistemologies and Graphic Narratives: Making and Communicating Knowledge in Hybrid Forms

updated: 
Tuesday, January 8, 2019 - 12:27pm
ICLA Research Committee on Comics Studies and Graphic Narrative
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 4, 2019

The history of hybrid forms, defined as textual and visual products that combine and integrate multiple types of symbolic elements, extends back to ancient times. Our current category of graphic narrative, as constructed in the Centre Belge de la Bande Dessinée, Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics, and Thierry Groenstein’s Système de la Bande Dessinée, participates in that history, gaining importance and traction in society and the academy in the current century. This workshop is intended to examine the history, function, and significance of graphic narratives, specifically in making and communicating various forms of knowledge—personal, scientific, historic, cultural, and textual—in a broader context of hybridity.
