Comics and Nation 2017

Comics & Nation’, a two-day international event held at Bangor University with the generous
support of the ASMCF, brought together scholars working on a variety of cultures and
disciplines to provide a forum for the discussion of the interrelation between comic art and
nation. The conference placed special emphasis on text/image creation from minority cultures,
such as Brittany, Corsica and Picardy in the Francophone context, in this way furthering the
understanding of contemporary France. The conference therefore made an important
contribution to the thriving field of bande dessinée in French and Francophone studies, and
contributed to interdisciplinarity and critical dialogue within subjects in Modern Languages,
Celtic Studies, and American Studies. There were around twenty-five attendees across the two
days, including fifteen speakers, from the UK, Australia and the USA.
