Philadelphia, November 16-18, 2012

Graphic Novels in the German Classroom

As graphic novels grow in popularity, they are increasingly finding a place in the German classroom. The fusion of narrative text with images supports learners whose reading skills are still developing, while the dense interweaving of words and pictures opens up multiple modes of interpretation. For this session, we welcome submissions on the use of graphic novels in German courses, including pedagogical approaches to graphic novels, comparisons of films or literary texts with graphic novel adaptations, and thematic courses featuring graphic novels.

Please submit the following by December 12, 2011, to Jennifer Redmann, Franklin & Marshall College ([log in to unmask]):
a) "Annual Meeting 2012 Proposal" in subject line;
b) title of your presentation,
c) an abstract (250 words or fewer),
d) anticipated AV needs, if any; and
e) your name, affiliation, and contact information in the message.
All presenters must be 2012 AATG members by February 1, 2012.
