COMICS/FANDOM

University of Cologne, 28/03/2019 – 29/03/2019

 

Considering how crucially comic book marketing depends on loyal customers, especially fans, and to how great an extent the ever-expanding franchises surrounding Marvel’s or DC’s comic worlds rely on user participation and fandom, it seems striking that the connection between Comics Studies and Fan Studies has hardly been explored in any great detail so far.

Thursday, November 1, 2018

Critical scholarship of comics, cartoons, and graphic narratives has been a burgeoning field in research and debate for at least the last twenty-five years. Amid such scholarly richness, LGBTQ comics criticism and scholarly attention to LGBTQ comics and cartoons is at least keeping pace with a field within which it is still negotiating its position.

Gender-Switching and Queer Opportunities in Web-Native Shakespeare

We seek submissions to a seminar on Gender Switching and Queerness in Web-Native Shakespare at the upcoming ESRA conference (http://www.ircl.cnrs.fr/francais/sos2019.htm) in Montpellier, France, in June 2019. We welcome papers exploring the interpretive possibilities generated by queer and gender-switched casting in web series and other digitally-native media adaptations of Shakespeare’s plays. By shifting the means of production and distribution beyond traditional mainstream media channels, new digital platforms like YouTube, Tumblr, and Netflix offer a creative process through which more people can adapt Shakespeare in their own image.

Special Issue: Twin Peaks: Season Three

updated: 
Monday, September 24, 2018 - 4:34pm
New American Notes Online
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 31, 2019

This special issue of NANO will explore the significance of the recently released third season of the seminal television show, Twin Peaks. Controversial from the outset and divisive to fans and critics alike, the new Twin Peaks (2017) is emerging as perhaps even more radical and important than the original series (1990-1991). The original Twin Peaks is often considered the first cult television show that spawned intensive fan followings in the emergent world of the web, and the immense catalogue of paratexts and influences the series has inspired since has never been fully tabulated. As a central work of American surrealism, a universe of oddities continues to find Twin Peaks’s orbit.

The Stage and the Comics Page: Graphic Adaptations of Plays, Theatrical Adaptations of Comics

updated: 
Thursday, September 20, 2018 - 10:54am
Northeast MLA 2019, March 21-24
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel seeks papers that explore adaptations from comics into theater, or from theater into comics. Whether comics adaptations of classic plays, or celebrated graphic narratives that get adapted for the musical stage, the interplay between the stage and the comics page is rich and multi-directional, as both are visual narratives, with very different points of access and methods of meaning-making. The ill-fated Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark may not have much in common with a graphic novelization of Oscar Wilde’s Salome, for instance, but they share an attempt to grapple with the intersection of the two media.
