CFP: Contemporary Comics (March 25; May 21)
artists, current themes and contexts
21 May 2010
This academic conference is presented in collaboration with Copenhagen's comics biennial, the international comics festival komiks.dk in Øksnehallen, Copenhagen, 22-23 May.
As an independent part of the festival's programme, it aims to present the status of international research in contemporary comics both to an academic and a general audience, and will form part of a broader range of programming in the city in the days surrounding the festival, celebrating comics and comics culture.
Contributions might be within the following subjects, but we welcome other suggestions:
- Comics / politics / society
- Aesthetic movements
- Contemporary artists: mainstream and independent
- Publication platforms: from book publishing to the internet
- The future of comics
Abstracts of approximately 250 words and a short biographical text of maximum 100 words should be sent by 25 March to Rikke Platz Cortsen at firstname.lastname@example.org along with any general enquiries.
