[cfp] Mix 2012: A Comics Symposium, Marathon and Exhibition

Posted 17 May, 2012

Call for Papers, and Roundtable and Workshop Proposals

Keynote Speaker: Chris Ware
Theme: Epic Narratives
Symposium Dates: October 4 – 6, 2012
Proposal Deadline: June 4, 2012

Columbus College of Art & Design's Mix 2012 is comprised of three events: a symposium, a comics marathon (a student competition), and a comics exhibition.

This call invites proposals for papers, workshops and roundtables for the Comics Symposium, a celebration of and investigation into the art of the comic book, the graphic novel, and other book-length forms of sequential art narrative, featuring keynote guest Chris Ware, author of Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth. Consistent with the work of its keynote speaker, the Comics Symposium will be a two-day event for papers, workshops and roundtables, built around the theme "Epic Narratives".  Details on the panel topics are below. Some of these panels will also connect to the hands-on workshops and discussion roundtables that follow them.

Designed to bring together a variety of perspectives in an open and welcoming environment, the College encourages submissions from artists, writers, educators, publishers, students, curators, and critics.  As a proposal for a paper, workshop or roundtable is being reviewed, consideration will be given to this diverse population. Note that special consideration is also given to proposals which emphasize cross-disciplinary approaches and/or formats, and to roundtables or workshop proposals that connect the symposium theme and its panels to hands-on practice.
