This year’s conference of the German Society for Comics Studies (ComFor) “Comics and Agency – Actors, Publics, Participation” will take place online. The deadline for submissions has been extended until 15 June, 2020. Interested scholars can send an abstract of approx. 500 words plus a short biography (in English or German) to firstname.lastname@example.org. All papers will be presented October 8-10, 2020 live via Zoom.
The conference aims to intensify a dialogue between the various disciplinary approaches to the medium of comics and related popular narrative images (including manga, graphic novels or cartoons) by focusing on the concept of medial, mediated, and mediating agency.
Participants are not required to be members of ComFor. Contributions from non-members of the German Society for Comics Studies are welcome!
