Festivals Extra: Call For Papers For ICAF 2014 Goes Out

imageHere. Due March 7.

Since this year's version of the premiere academics-in-comics event is being held at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum in Columbus, Ohio, they are looking extra-closely at papers that cover topics in the Museum's wheelhouse.
"In recognition of the new, expanded facility of the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum, we are hoping to schedule some panels on issues pertaining to the specialties of the collection, which include underground comix and manga. We are also interested in papers that address the interaction between comics and the art world. Given the ever-expanding role of technology in the exhibition, preservation, and dissemination of comic art, we especially welcome paper proposals that address comics in the digital and online realms, as well as in museums and other unconventional exhibition sites."
The conference is in mid-November. I plan to attend.
