Our first conference as part of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences was a great success. Over two days, we gathered for forty papers representing the breadth of contemporary comics scholarship, two great roundtables, including our joint session with the Canadian Society for the Study of Education, and of course our keynote lecture from Prof. Frederick Luis Aldama.
Thank you to the presenters and session chairs, Program Chair Benjamin Woo, Local Area Coordinator Kevin McNeilly, and the volunteers who reviewed abstracts: Peter Bryan, Keith Friedlander, Orion Ussner Kidder, Frederik Byrn Køhlert, Natalie Garceau, Paul Malone, Anna Peppard, Chris Reyns-Chikuma, and Sylvain Rheault.
We’re looking forward to taking the CSSC/SCEBD conference to Western University next year for Congress 2020—watch for our CFP in the fall.
