Cartoon conference to be held in Florida

The Univerisity of Florida is sponsoring the fourth annual conference on comics. This year’s theme is “Comics and Childhood”

The fourth annual University of Florida conference on comics will focus on the theme of comics and childhood. Comics are still largely seen by the general public as a media directed toward a child or youth audience. While this boundary is slowly being dissipated, our conference wishes to look not only at comics and childhood, but also comics and children’s literature, comics and education, comics and childhood themes, comics and revisions of children’s tales, comics and their intended audience. Since comics are encompassed in the larger context of image and text traditionally reserved for children, we will be particularly interested in the use of image and text in the hybrid forms of comics and children’s literature.

Sounds very academic, but interesting nonetheless.
