Subjective Ramblings and Peripheral Thoughts from the Edges of a Comics Studies Project
Scandinavian Journal of Comic Art (SJoCA) is an online, open-access, academic journal about comics and sequential art, applying a double blind peer review process. The scope of the journal is interdisciplinary, encouraging a wide range of theoretical and methodological perspectives. The journal publishes articles, forum texts and book reviews.
Although global in its scope, publishing high quality research despite of national or regional boundaries, the journal is rooted in the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) and has the ambition to reflect and incite discussion in the field of comics studies in these countries.
SJoCA now enters a new, exciting phase with a new editorial team and fresh ideas. So, as the first of many steps toward putting the Nordic countries on the comics studies map, we ask all scholars with an interest in comics research, and with or without an affiliation with the Nordic countries, to send us proposals for papers, forum texts and reviews. Send an e-mail with your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org and take part in building the field of comics research in the Nordic countries. Visit our website, SJoCA.com, for more information and author guidelines.
Addendum: I want to add two things to this call for papers. First, please, feel free to share this call for papers anywhere you think it might find an audience. Second, if you have your own call or stumble upon one that that relates to comics studies, New York, or urban or regional cultural studies, feel free to drop me a line at p . m a r t i n . l u n d @ g m a i l . c o m (minus the spaces) and I will post it.
