Whether you're teaching an entire course on the graphic novel or just incorporating one or two texts into a course on American or contemporary lit, this roundtable is designed to provide various teaching or critical strategies for approaching this genre. Send a brief CV and a 150-word abstract of your technique, analytical emphasis, pedagogical successes, or rationale for text selections to Karen Weekes ( by January 15.

This session will probably be scheduled at ALA (Boston, May 26-29) just before an organizing session for a 21st-century/contemporary literature society; if you are interested in this endeavor, please also contact, and I'll create an email list for updates.
