Call for Papers on Women in Comics

This came in through a listserv a friend of mine is on and he helpfully forwarded it to me, and I’m sharing it with all of the other comics scholars out there:

After two very successful conferences -Women in Comics I at The University of Cambridge (2009), and Women in Comics II at Leeds Art Gallery, as part of Comics Forum and Thought Bubble (2010) – we are committed to publishing a collection of essays and interviews around the theme of women in comics. The collection will give a chronological overview of women creators and the representation of women in comics in Anglophone Comics, Bandes Dessinées and Manga.

We are in negotiation with an established American University Press about the publication and look to publish the collection in 2013/2014.

In addition to our already accepted essays we invite submissions on the following topics:

  • Early women comic characters, particularly pre-1945
  • Women in superhero comics and/or as superheroines
  • Women and life narratives
  • Female characters in Manga

Abstracts of 150-200 words should be sent to Sarah Lightman (s.lightman.1 [at] research.gla.ac.uk) and Catriona MacLeod (Catriona.MacLeod [at] ulip.lon.ac.uk) before August 15th 2012.
