Now in its sixth year, Page 23’s LitCon seeks abstracts from all disciplinary and theoretical perspectives related to not only comics and graphic novels, but gaming, television, film, anime, action figure studies.  Any pop culture topic is welcome!

We’re also especially interested in:

    Panels centering on pop culture pedagogy, aimed at current teachers at all levels.
    Papers addressing diversity of race, class, gender, sexuality, and ability in comics, and how those issues might be impacted by our current socio-political climate.
    Papers or panels discussing the works of guests attending Denver Comic Con (http://popcultureclassroom.org/dcc/guests/)

Editorial, interdisciplinary, and creative proposals are also welcome, along with traditional academic papers. Multimedia equipment will be available to all presenters, and we encourage and prefer visually engaging presentations. Page 23 LitCon has no registration fee and acceptance includes a three-day pass to Denver Comic Con!
