APPEARANCE: Dundee, 28 June 2009

TIMEFRAMES: Narrative and Sequence in Comics

Sunday 28th June 2009, 11am – 6pm

D’Arcy Thompson Lecture Theatre Tower Building, University of Dundee

Timeframes, the third annual Dundee comics conference will be held in association with the Dundee Literary Festival on Sunday 28th June 2009. It will explore how the medium of comics bends, distorts and manipulates time, and the representation of the past and future in comics, and how the comics form relies on sequence. The speakers include prominent comics writers Warren Ellis and Alan Grant, artists such as Keith Robson and Emma Vieceli, comics editors Bill McLoughlin and David Bishop, and comics scholars Julia Round, Peter Hughes Jachimiak, and Ian Hague. The conference will also feature a workshop on writing for comics and graphic novels, and the opening of an exclusive exhibition of artwork from DC Thomson’s science fiction comic Starblazer. All are welcome. The conference fee is £10, which includes refreshments.
