Keith McCleary at UC San Diego and I are pleased to report that our CFP for the Modern Language Association’s 2016 roundtable, “Developments in Comics Pedagogy,” is now online at MLA.org. Please visit this link for more information: http://www.mla.org/cfp_detail_7437.
We welcome submissions (200- to 350-word abstracts) that identify innovative approaches to teaching all aspects of comics—broadly considered in terms of production, research, and appreciation—in upper- and lower-division courses in literature, language, and related studies.
This special session is an exciting opportunity to share your pedagogical practices with other scholars and teachers interested in comic books, graphic novels, and other visual narratives. The roundtable format also allows for an energetic discussion between participants and audience members, which will make this sessions stand out during the 2016 meeting of the MLA in Austin, Texas.
