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.

Gender-Switching and Queer Opportunities in Web-Native Shakespeare

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 4:16pm
European Shakespeare Research Association (ESRA), Montpellier, June 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, October 31, 2018

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.

Monday, October 15, 2018 - 11:41am
Alison Halsall and Jonathan Warren
deadline for submissions: 
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.
