Against Translation: Global Comics History and Memory – Abstracts due December 20

The primary objective of this collection is to bring together original scholarship on comics
that are potentially not receiving the scholarly attention they deserve due to their lack of
English translation or that have been studied in scholarship unavailable to an Anglophone
audience. In addition, the collection’s focus will allow contributors the freedom to
collocate works by creators from different national and analytical traditions, as well as
genres within the form, to forge links across the field and give attention to comics in all
their various guises.
