CSSC Conference May 11-12 in Toronto

The annual conference and the Toronto Comic Arts Festival are fast approaching, and here’s what’s up! At the bottom of this post you’ll find an up-to-date full programme for the conference (please note that some panels have changed and all panels will be held at the Marriott Bloor Yorkville); take a look and see what’s in store! Here are a few highlights:

Keynote by Rebecca Wanzo: Wanzo, associate professor of women, gender, and sexuality studies at Washington University in St. Louis, and founding board member of the Comics Studies Society, will be presenting an address titled “Never Post, Always Present: African American Underground Comix and Post-Race and Post-Feminist Imaginaries” on Thursday afternoon. Dr. Wanzo’s talk is not to be missed!

CSSC Social: On Thursday evening at 6pm, the CSSC will have its social night at The Firkin on Bloor (just across from the hotel). Come mingle, trade floppies, and have a few beverages!

CSSC AGM: Late Friday morning, we will meet for the society Annual General Meeting. In advance of the AGM, we’d really appreciate it if all members could take just a few minutes to fill out this survey on the direction of the society. Taking the time to answer just a few questions will help immeasurably in shaping the AGM agenda!

Until May 11if you have any questions you can always get in touch with BarbaraBenChris, or Kalervo directly. If we don’t know the answer, we certainly know who does! Don’t forget to keep checking back here, on Twitter, or on our Facebook page for more updates! See you soon!
