Greetings, True Believer! Now in its Super Seventh Year, Page 23’s LitCon seeks abstracts from all disciplinary and theoretical perspectives related not only to comics and graphic novels, but gaming, television, film, anime, or action figure studies. Any pop culture topic is welcome!

We’re especially interested in:
  • Panels centering on pop culture pedagogy, aimed at current teachers at all levels
  • Papers addressing diversity of race, class, gender, neurology, sexuality, and ability in comics, and how those issues might be impacted by our current socio-political climate
  • Papers or panels discussing the works of guests attending Denver Comic Con! (see https://denvercomiccon.com/ for a list of attendees)
  • Proposals for pop culture-related play readings, creative writing workshops, slam poetry events, fiction readings, epic rap battles, and other fare beyond the traditional literary conference milieu

Page 23 LitCon has no registration fee and acceptance includes a three-day pass to Denver Comic Con!

Please email abstracts and brief personal statements to page23@popcultureclassroom.org by March 1st, 2018
