for the International Association for Media and Communication Research
conference in Mexico City from July 21-24 has been posted. It's enormous
and looking pretty darn exciting. Not to mention a truly international crowd, presenting in both English and Spanish! I will be presenting on "Manga and Anime in the United States Market" for the Comic Art Working Group section
on Tuesday, July 21.
In addition, I will be chairing both of the Comic Art Working Group's sessions. John Lent, Temple University professor and editor of International Journal of Comic Art, cannot be in attendance and asked me to do the ceremonial duties in his stead.
So if you were hoping to meet one of the foremost experts in this subfield in Mexico City next week, you'll be getting the (perhaps disappointing) consolation prize--me. Sorry folks! Obviously, you can consider the paper that he was to present removed from the program.
If you're going to be there, drop me a line! And feel free to spread word of the conference to interested parties, as well. ^_~
