[cfp] Call for Papers / Call for Speakers: Anime Expo Anime and Manga Studies Symposium

Posted 16 Apr, 2011

(July 1 July 4, Los Angeles, CA)

DEADLINE: May 20, 2011

The continuing popularizing of Japanese comics and animation outside Japan has been a topic of interest to scholars across a wide range of disciplines, fields and approaches. However, much of the English-language research and writing on anime and manga has taken place on an ad-hoc basis, and until recently, there has been relatively little sense of a persistent community of anime/manga scholars.

Capitalizing on the growing prominence of scholarly approaches to Japanese popular culture, Anime Expo, the largest and most popular gathering for fans of Japanese visual culture in the U.S. will be hosting a track of themed sessions exploring how anime and manga can have a place in scholarly discussion. AX 2011 will be held from July 1 to July 4 at the Los Angeles Convention Center (Los Angeles, CA).

Posted 04 Apr, 2011

On behalf of Donald Ault and the Editorial Staff of ImageTexT, I am pleased to announce that ImageTexT Volume 5, Issue 4 is now available:

This specual issue of ImageTexT, "Alan Moore and Adaptation" is edited by Rex Krueger and Katherine Shaeffer. The issue interrogates the relationship of Alan Moore's acclaimed work in comics to the process of adaptation. It seeks to explore not only how Moore's comics have been adapted, but how Moore's comics frequently function as adaptation in their own right.

"Alan Moore and Adaptation" features articles by Colin Beineke, Megan A.Condis, Vyshali Manivannan, Paul Petrovic and Jack Teiwes, as well as reviews by Eric L. Berlatsky, Ellen Grabiner, Mervi Miettinen, Laura Perna, Matthew Pustz, Caleb Simmons and Anastasia Ulanowicz.
