The Conversations Project. Comics.

The Conversations Project: Interdisciplinary Conversations About Comics, Literacy, and Scholarship seeks papers for an edited collection titled The Conversations Project. Comics. The goal of the Conversations Project is to bring together leading and emergent voices in comics by pairing those who study comics primarily from a humanities scholarship perspective with those who study comics mostly from the social sciences/ education/ literacy perspectives.   Each chapter of the project should be an informed, scholarly dialogue or conversation, preferably between two figures, one involved mostly in humanities-based comics scholarship and the other mostly involved inliteracy/education-based comics scholarship. Editor James Bucky Carter will craft a summative chapter that treats the bulk of the collection as qualitative data and will draw conclusions and make recommendations to readers based on emerging ideas, theories, and problem areas across the contributions. In this way, the book is similar to Aldema’s work in Multicultural Comics: From Zap to Blue Beetle and Your Brain on Latina Comics. Interested parties should contact Dr. Carter at or  Deadline for submissions is March 1, 2014.
