UPDATE: Visual Studies: Mythology in Comics (grad) (3/31/06; 4/22/06)
Deadline extended to Mar. 31.
The Seventh Annual Graduate English Conference
Southern Connecticut State University, New Haven, CT
I am 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: Mythology in Comics panel.
