The Canadian Society for the Study of Comics invites proposals for papers to be presented at our annual conference, on any and all aspects of comics, graphic narrative, picturebooks, and textual-visual arts. This year we would be particularly interested in receiving proposals on comics by and/or about indigenous peoples. Proposals from academics and independent scholars in all fields are welcome. The conference will take place in Toronto on May 11-12. Find information about the CSSC and our previous conferences on our website: comics-scholars.com.
Please submit a proposed paper title and 200-word abstract, along with a brief 50-word biography and contact information, to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 6, 2017.
The conference is held in collaboration with the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, a major international exhibition of independent comics artists and small publishers partnered with the Toronto Reference Library, taking place May 13-14 2017.
