13th CFP COMFOR-Conference 2018 (ComFor): "Spaces Between – Gender, Diversity and Identity in Comics"Within the framework of the 13th CFP COMFOR-Conference, the German Society for Comics Studies (ComFor) will examine the productive potential of comics by uncovering and analysing different forms of the ‘spaces between’ within the art form itself, but also within its production and its audience. The internationally and interdisciplinarily assembled talks will focus on the question of how gender, identity and diversity are represented and negotiated in sequential art. The theme of the conference, Spaces Between – Gender, Diversity and Identity in Comics, will draw our attention to the nexus between the medium of comics and categories of difference and identity such as gender, dis/ability, age, and ethnicity, in order to open and deepen an interdisciplinary conversation between comics studies and intersectional identity studies within the international comics studies community. In this respect, the 13th annual conference of the German Society for Comics Studies will not only contribute to the disclosure of exclusions, power structures and (hetero-)normative allocations in comics, but will also critically analyse their socio-political and communicative forms of (re-)production.
