Comic Art & Comics Area
Popular Culture Association Conference, April 12-16, 2006
Atlanta Marriott Marquis Hotel - Atlanta, GA 30303, USA

The Comic Art & Comics Area of the PCA invites all comics scholars to
participate in the 2006 meeting of the Popular Culture Association and
American Culture Association. Details of the conference can be found
at the conference website: <>.

The Comic Art & Comics Area offers a chance for scholars from across
the country (and the globe) to share their research and exchange ideas
on the growing field of comics scholarship. Graduate students and those
without current academic affiliation are welcome. Papers on all aspects
of the medium are invited.

This call asks for individual paper proposals or submissions for entire
panels. If a presenter would like to propose a special panel or
roundtable discussion, please e-mail the chair so she can forward the
request to the mailing list. If you are submitting a panel, please make
sure to note the members of your panel, including their complete contact

Papers should be delivered in 15-20 minutes, maximum. The PCA limits
presenters to one paper given at the conference, so if you are interested
in presenting a paper in the Comic Arts & Comics Area, do not submit a
paper to another area.

Audio/Visual Note: The PCA will supply DVD players and TV monitors
only - no slide or overhead transparency projectors, VHS players, etc.,
will be available. If you wish to use a laptop, you must bring a
compatible S-Video cable.

Participants are eligible for the annual M. Thomas Inge Award for
Comics Scholarship, awarded to the top paper presented in the Comic
Art & Comics Area of the PCA.
