Call for Papers, Panels, and Presentations

500 word abstracts for papers, panels, and roundtables, offering a critical approach on comics are being accepted for a scholarly conference at:

DENVER COMIC CON
COLORADO CONVENTION CENTER
DENVER, CO

May 23-25, 2015

The standard length of a comic book is 22 pages. What comes next? Page 23. Through page 23’s LitCon (formally ROMOCOCO), scholars establish comic books and graphic novels as important canonical texts that echo far beyond their final panels. Teaching comics, creating academic analyses, publishing the work of fellow comics scholars – this isn’t a revolution it’s just what’s next.

We seek abstracts from all disciplinary and theoretical perspective related to not only comics and graphic novels, but you gaming, television or film, anime, action figure studies – any pop-culture topic is welcome! We’re also especially interested in panels centered on the pop-culture pedagogy, aimed at current teachers at all levels. Editorial, interdisciplinary, and creative proposals are also welcome, along with the traditional academic papers. Multimedia equipment will be available to all presenters, and we encourage and prefer visually engaging presentations. Page 23 LitCon has no registration fee and acceptance includes a three day pass to Denver Comic Con.

Proposals due February 13, 2015
