"Mediality and Materiality of Contemporary Comics"

Workshop of the Comics Studies Working Group in the German Society of Media Studies at the Graduate Academy of the University of Tuebingen, Germany, April 24 to April 26, 2015

The Workshop „Mediality and Materiality of Contemporary Comics“ examines the relation between the mediality and the materiality of comics, particularly focusing on how this relation has changed in the context of digitalization and an increasingly convergent media culture. Among the topics discussed are: examinations of the mediality of digital as well as printed comics, discussions of the materiality of printed as well as digital comics, reconstructions of the changing face of comics authorship in the context of digitalization, investigations into new and emerging forms of seriality in the context of digitalization, and analyses that focus on inter- or transmedial aspects in the context of media convergence.
