Description

This two-day conference on comics and the pre-modern world is aimed at academics, teachers and artists. Ranging widely in its chronological and geographical scope, from the Bronze Age onwards, through Classical Antiquity, the Near East, Mesoamerica and beyond. The concept of comics itself is similarly broadly interpreted, covering different traditions including among others the American graphic novel, the Franco-Belgian tradition, and Japanese manga, and comics as a medium through which to conduct as well as express academic research.
