I am very glad to share here that The Comics Grid: Journal of Comics Scholarship is open for submissions once again.
Our Call for Papers 2019-2020 for our tenth volume includes detailed information about the scope of the call, our selection, editorial and peer review processes, authorship attribution guidelines, information on copyright and licensing and archiving information.
I would like to emphasise the following section of the Call:
We invite energetic writing that is theoretically and interpretively bold. While academic rigour, the inclusion and close discussion of images and citational correctness are important to us as a precondition, a key feature our editors and reviewers will consider is the argument, the discovery, the evidence-based eureka moments conveyed in economical, precise, and, ideally, subtle prose. We believe academic writing about comics should be as striking and immediate as the medium itself.”
I have published our Call for Papers 2019-2020 in the Humanities Commons CORE repository. Metadata below.
