Papers must meet (any of) the criteria put forward in the general #CSS20 CFP and employ the theoretical framework of the Blue Age (“The Blue Age of Comic Books”: The Scalar). My own paper, for example, will focus on audio comics as Blue Age comics. 

Accepted panelists will read and critique each other’s work at each stage as part of a mini working group. The goal is two-fold: to prepare for the conference and to foster working relationships among panelists. 


Working group schedule:

·      First draft March 2020

·      Second draft May 2020

·      Final draft July 2020



·      Graduate student applications will be privileged

·      Abstracts (no more than 250 words) will be assessed on their own merits and on how well they work with other abstracts

·      Acceptance at this stage does not guarantee acceptance for the conference
