The University of Florida's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is pleased to announce the 2008 UF Conference on Comics and Graphic Novels: "ImageSexT: Intersections of Sex, Gender, and Sexuality," which will be held in Gainesville, Florida, on March 21-22, 2008.

ImageSexT: Intersections of Sex, Gender, and Sexuality

This year's conference will focus on issues of representation in the most literal sense: that of the image on the page (screen, monitor, etc.).Presentations will move beyond facile reiterations of identity politics to explore the complexities and complexes of bodies and desires for artists, writers, and readers of comics. Here we are using "comics" in its broadest sense, to include animation, manga, anime, graphic novels, webcomics, political cartoons, and even some "fine art."

Guests for the 2008 UF Conference on Comics include Phoebe Gloekner, Gail Simone, and Sally Cruikshank. Two dozen academic presentations will explore the boundaries of sex, gender, and sexuality.
