|Animation and the Comic Book, Symposium: Call for Papers|
|Thursday, 28 July 2016 08:51|
A one-day research symposium is hosted by Canterbury Christ Church University Friday 30th September 2016, Augustine House, Canterbury Christ Church University.
The event will take place as part of Canterbury Anifest.
The animated film and comic book have a long-established relationship that features myriad forms of adaptation, remediation, and cross media synergy. This phenomena is global in nature, as we consider the work of Manga/Anime pioneer Osamu Tezuka, the adaptations of Herge's Tintin, and the ongoing popularity of the U.S. Superhero 'Saturday morning' cartoon or feature-length adaptation. Furthermore, digital media has enabled different forms of hybridity between animation and the comic book to flourish in recent years in the guise of the 'motion comic' and 'motion book'.
For this one-day symposium, the organisers are inviting proposals for twenty-minute papers and practice-based research presentations that reflect upon the ongoing and evolving relationship between animation and the comic book.
It also encourages discussions around medium specificity, and the issues that face multi-platform and media crossover. They also actively encourage proposals from interested postgraduate researchers.
Keynote Speaker confirmed: Professor Paul Wells
Topics may include, but are not limited to:
Deadline for abstract submission: 3 August 2016.
