Music and comics have had a connection right from the start, with the title of the seminal newspaper strip Hogan’s Alley taken from a popular song by Edward Harrigan. As the 20th Century progressed these two media flirted with each other for inspiration and style, from Marvel comics based on the rock band KISS, to Duran Duran taking their name from Barbarella. Back room printing presses in the 60s and 70s saw the gig flyer and alternative comix emerge side by side, and comic creators from Alan Moore to Richard McGuire have been inspired by music in the creation of their long (play) narratives.

Rethinking 1968 and the Global Sixties

updated: 
Monday, June 4, 2018 - 9:46am
AISNA Graduate Forum
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, July 15, 2018

2018 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the protests of 1968, the moment in which several grassroots movements converged in their fights against social injustices and discrimination of race, class, gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. From the civil rights movement to the anti-Vietnam War movement, the women’s movement and the environmental movement, the events of the Global Sixties were the culmination of a broad wave of activism that continued into the mid 1970s and beyond. This period was also paramount in reshaping the role of “hyphenated Americans.” Notions of citizenship were expanded and democratic principles and practices re-envisioned, pushed in new directions.

Doctorate in Linguistic, Literary and Intercultural Studies in European and extra-European Perspectives of the University of Milan
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 25, 2018

 The Doctorate in Linguistic, Literary and Intercultural Studies in European and extra-European Perspectives of the University of Milan is pleased to announce the organization of the Sc[Arti] conference to be held at the University of Milan on 7, 8 and 9 November 2018.  Flotsam does not exist in itself: there are no concepts nor entities that intrinsically possess this connotation. Rather, "flotsam" is the residue of a selection process based on shared convictions and conventions, which takes place in time and space according to individual and community dynamics.
