[event] Graven Images: Religion in Comic Books and Graphic Novels, April 11 - 13, 2008

Posted 24 Mar, 2008

Boston University is hosting a conference addressing the theme of religion in comics. From the website:

From the performance of religion in comics, to religious or mythic traditions among the elements of various works, to the use of comics by religious practitioners themselves, the relationship between comics and religion is dynamic and evolving. Given the increasing seriousness with which the public has come to view comics as an art form and Americans' fraught but passionate relationship with religion, "Graven Images" will provide an opportunity for discussion of cutting- edge artistic and social issues by exploring the roles of religion in comic books and graphic novels. This event is free and open to the public.

The event is being organized by Christine Hoff Kraemer and A. David Lewis. For more information, including a schedule of speakers and events, visit the conference webpage.
