      ANNOUNCEMENT:

      Final call for papers
      The Comics Get Medieval 2013:
      A continuing Celebration of Medieval-themed Comics

      PCA at Washington Marriott Wardman Park, 3/27-30/13
      Special Sessions of the Comic Art & Comics Area
      Organized By Michael A. Torregrossa and Jason Tondro
      Proposals Due to Organizers by 1 September 2012

      Celebrating our seventh year in 2013, proposals are now being
      considered for inclusion at “The Comics Get Medieval 2013,” 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
      Comic Art & Comics Area of the Popular Culture Association (PCA) for
      the 2013 Joint Conference of the National Popular Culture and American
      Culture Associations to be held at the Washington Marriott Wardman
      Park from 27 to 30 March 2013 in Washington, DC.

      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 dessinée, 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 anachronistic settings (pre-medieval
      or post-medieval eras or medieval-inspired secondary worlds). We are
      also interested in papers looking at medieval-themed 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
      during the early part of 2013. (Individuals only interested in
      submitting for the collection should also send proposals by 30
      November 2012 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 Project web site available at
      <http://Arthur-of-the-Comics.org/>, both organized by The Virtual
      Society for the Study of Popular Culture and the Middle Ages.

      No later than 30 November 2012, interested individuals (who must be
      members of PCA or ACA or join for 2013) should submit full contact
      information (name, address, phone/cell, and email), titles, abstracts
      of 300-500 words, and a brief resume to the session’s organizers, who
      will then forward them to the area chair. Address all inquiries and
      proposals to the organizers at the following address:
      <Medieval.Comics.Project@...> and include “Comics Get Medieval
      2013” in the subject line.
