[cfp] Proposals for MLA Volume on Teaching the Graphic Novel (Collection)

Posted 04 Jan, 2005

For the MLA's Options for Teaching series, the Publications Committee has approved development of the volume Teaching the Graphic Novel, edited by Stephen E. Tabachnick. As currently projected, the volume will be aimed primarily at nonspecialists --those who occasionally teach a graphic novel or wish to do so--as well as at those who already teach courses in the graphic novel.

The volume will include sections on 1) theoretical and historical issues, 2) aesthetic issues, 3) social issues, 4) course contexts, and 5) teaching specific graphic novels or graphic novelists.  The book will also offer a bibliography and list of resources for further study. Given the interdisciplinary and international nature of the graphic novel, submissions are welcome from faculty in diverse fields (e.g., literatures in English and other languages, film, art, graphic design, philosophy, history and political science, among other fields).

One-page abstracts should be emailed to by 1 May 2005, although the editor encourages contact with him well before the deadline. Abstracts can also be mailed to Stephen Tabachnick, English Department, Patterson Hall Room 467, The University of Memphis, Memphis, TN 38152-3510.
