Dylan Horrocks in Gainesville

This weekend, the comics-academia hotbed in Gainesville, FL hosts its conference World Building: Seriality and History, The 5th Annual University of Florida Conference on Comics. If you're in the area, you'll want to consider getting some intellectual action.

"This fifth annual conference on comics will focus on the construction of narrative worlds in comics, with particular emphasis on the various temporalities of the medium. We are especially interested in the ways temporality informs the status of comics as a serial medium (both in terms of serial publication as well as the serialization of time within the page) and the ways temporality relates to the representation of history and memory within the narrative. This could be in terms of personal and social history, as in Maus and Persepolis, or in terms of internal narrative histories like superhero retcons and crossovers."
