      THE COMICS GET MEDIEVAL 2011:
      A CELEBRATION IN ANTICIPATION OF THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF PRINCE VALIANT
      CALL FOR PAPERS (PCA: SAN ANTONIO, TX 4/20-23/11)
      SPECIAL SESSIONS OF THE COMICS & COMIC ART AREA
      ORGANIZED BY MICHAEL A. TORREGROSSA AND JASON TONDRO
      PROPOSALS DUE TO ORGANIZERS BY 1 DECEMBER 2010

      Celebrating our sixth year in 2011, proposals are now being considered for
      inclusion at �The Comics Get Medieval 2011,� a series of panels and
      roundtables sponsored by The Virtual Society for the Study of Popular
      Culture and the Middle Ages and to be hosted by the Comics & Comic Art Area
      of the Popular Culture Association (PCA) for the 2011 Joint Conference of
      the National Popular Culture and American Culture Associations to be held
      from 20-23 April 2011 at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter & Riverwalk
      Hotels, 101 Bowie Street , San Antonio,TX 78205.

      The goal of these sessions is to foster communication between medievalists,
      comics scholars, and specialists in popular culture studies in general. The
      organizers define �medieval comics� as any aspect of the comics medium
      (panel cartoons, comic strips, comics books, comics albums, band dessin�e,
      graphic novels, manga, webcomics, comics to film/film to comics, etc.) that
      feature medieval themes either in stories set during the Middle Ages or in
      stories presenting some element of the medieval in the post-medieval era.
      We are also interested in papers looking at medieval comics from a
      pedagogical perspective.


      Completed papers should be delivered in 15-20 minutes (depending on the
      number of presenters). All proposals will also be considered for inclusion
      in an essay collection to be edited by the panel organizers beginning in
      late 2011. (Individuals only interested in submitting for the collection
      should also send proposals by 1 December 2010 deadline and indicate their
      preference in the email.)

      In addition, a select list of potential topics and a bibliographic guide to
      medieval comics will appear as part of THE MEDIEVAL COMICS PROJECT web site
      available at <http://MedievalComicsProject.org> and THE ARTHUR OF THE COMICS
      website available at <http://Arthur-of-the-Comics.org/>, both organized by
      the Society for the Study of Popular Culture and the Middle Ages.


      No later that 1 December 2010, interested individuals (who must be members
      of PCA or ACA or join for 2011) should submit full contact information
      (name, address, phone/cell, and email), titles, and abstracts of 300-500
      words to the sessions� organizers, who will then forward them to area chair.
      Address all inquiries and proposals to the organizers at the following
      address: <Medieval.Comics.Project@...> and include �Comics Get
      Medieval 2011� in the subject line.
