CFP: Visual Studies (grad) (3/15/06; 4/22/06)

The Seventh Annual Graduate English Conference
Southern Connecticut State University, New Haven, CT

I'm seeking papers from graduate students that examine mythologization in comics. Which myths, legends and folktales have been retold? Where do these retellings remain faithful and how do they depart from the original stories? What does this suggest about motifs and topologies? These and other similar questions are the focus of the Visual Studies panel.

Please submit a 250-350 word abstract in the body of the e-mail or as a Word (.doc) attachment by Mar. 15, 2006 to or Include your full name, institutional affiliation, e-mail, mailing address, and title of presentation. Notifications of acceptance will be made by Mar. 31, 2006, with papers due by Apr. 10, 2006. Final papers should be about six pages (15 minutes in length).
