Conference: Rocky Mountain Conference on Comics and Graphic Novels
Place: Denver, Colorado, USA
Date: May 28-30, 2013
Submission deadline for abstracts: March 1, 2013 - Updated submission deadline: March 15, 2013

Description: »Though there are many sociological and psychological areas of study that theorize about the relationship between violence in the media and “real world” violence, it is also important to examine this pervasive topic through literary analysis. For ROMOCOCO 2013, we are particularly interested in essays that investigate the role, purpose and representation of violence in comic books and graphic novels and/or their subsequent film versions.«
