[cfp] Webcomics Roundtable at NeMLA 2014

Posted 25 Sep, 2013

Getting the Picture: On Recent Evolution in the Comics Industry (Roundtable)
45th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 3-6, 2014 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

From one perspective, the comics form is becoming more weighty and legitimized as graphic novels are sold in standard bookshops. However, at the same time, the comics industry is moving online, where free serialized webcomics such as Penny Arcade and Homestuck create new distribution and fandom models. This roundtable seeks papers that address webcomics as a form and/or an industry, changes in comics fandom due to these newly-popular forms, the role of manga or video games in these changes, or related issues. Abstracts or participation proposals to Emily Lauer at by September 30.

This will be a roundtable discussion, and I welcome creators and fans as well as scholars—please feel free to forward widely.
