The Danish Comics Council is organising an international symposium on comics to be held at the University of Copenhagen on Friday 21 May to coincide with the comics festival, which will take place that weekend, 22-23 May. The keynote address will be given by Jacques Samson, author with Benoît Peeters of the recent Chris Ware — La bande dessinée réinventé. Ware, not coincidentally, will be amongst the guests of the festival, along with Dan Clowes, Charles Burns, Dave Gibbons, Kevin O’Neill, Frank Quitely and others.

Here is our call for papers — please spread the word, and please send us an abstract should you wish to contribute a paper at the symposium! More information can be found at the symposium’s official website.
