The Canadian Society for the Study of Comics is a national scholarly association dedicated to advancing and promoting research in comic art and graphic narrative, broadly conceived. We welcome inter- and multi-disciplinary research presentations on formal, social and cultural aspects of comics, including but not limited to comic strips and cartoons, comic books, graphic novels, webcomics, picture books, and visual poetry. This year, as part of the Congress theme, “Circles of Conversation,” we are particularly interested in papers and panels that explore comics’ capacity to communicate across boundaries and domains. Our 2019 keynote address, “Latinographix: Taking a Can Opener to the History of Alternative Comics,” will be delivered by Dr. Frederick Luis Aldama, Arts and Humanities Distinguished Professor in the Departments of English as well as Spanish and Portuguese at The Ohio State University.
