Amsterdam Comics is pleased to announce our inaugural international conference, “Comics Interaction,” which will take place from 1-3 July in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Deadline for proposals: 17 April 2015.
Comprised of three days of parallel panel sessions, round table discussions, and public keynote lectures, the conference aims to encourage interdisciplinary connections between comics scholars from various disciplines, comics artists, publishers, and cultural workers from museums and other heritage sites. The conference will focus on three themes of comics interaction: Comics in Art, Art in Comics; History and Trauma in Comics; and Comics as World Literature. The conference will be hosted at the University of Amsterdam and several local cultural institutions.
Amsterdam Comics would like to thank:
The University of Amsterdam (UvA), VU University Amsterdam, the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (ASCA), the Amsterdam School for Culture and History (ASCH), the Netherlands Research
School for Literary Studies (OSL), the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Analysis (NICA), the department of Literature and Society (VU), the English Department and the Dutch Studies Department (UvA), and the History, Trauma & Comics Research Circle for their generous support of the conference.
