TB pal Jared ("Guttergeek") Gardner reminds us that the deadline for abstracts for the "Humor and Play" academic symposium, an event held in conjunction with the 2010 Festival of Cartoon Art at Ohio State, is rapidly approaching. Below is the call for papers (and you better believe that Charles and I will be in attendance!).
2. Perspectives from Narrative Theory
3. Krazy Kat at 100
To be considered for the panels, please send a 250-500 word abstract and a one-page vita to Jared Gardner at firstname.lastname@example.org. The extended deadline for abstracts is June 15, 2010. Please contact Jared with any questions.
