Monday, July 27, 2009 - 3:32pm
Northeast Modern Language Association 2010 Conference (contact: Miriam Brown Spiers)

What are the advantages of presenting autobiography in a graphic format, rather than in print text? How are autobiographical comics related to other comics and to one another, and what seems to be the impetus for creating such a comic? This panel seeks papers about a wide variety of autobiographical comics artists in an attempt to chart and understand this emerging genre. Send 300-500 word abstracts to Miriam Brown Spiers.
