Comics Studies@UNT is excited to announce that we are partnering with comics studies groups at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and Michigan State University, and with Digital Frontiers, to host the first virtual Flyover Comics Symposium, September 24-25, 2020.
This event was designed to fill the gap left by the cancellation of several comics studies conferences this year due to COVID-19. Papers already accepted to one of those conferences will be automatically accepted for the symposium.
New proposals for 20-minute papers, 60-minute panels, or conference posters will also be considered (submission deadline: August 2).
All are welcome to attend the event via Zoom, and registration is “Pay What You Will”, starting June 15, 2020.
You’ll have the opportunity to learn about a wide range of comics scholarship, creative projects, and comics-related pedagogy during each session, and participate in Q & A sessions with the presenters.
More details are available at the link above. Hope to see some of you there!
