  • Canon Fodder! A CXC Scholarly Symposium Canon Fodder! A CXC Scholarly Symposium October 13, 2016 - October 14, 2016

    Starting in October 2016, the annual Cartoon Crossroads Columbus (CXC) festival will include an academic symposium. Our theme for this inaugural year is “Canon Fodder,” seeking to test and remix the still-damp concrete of comics histories and canons before they set. The goal for the symposium is to launch an extended conversation among participants that will continue into the CXC weekend and beyond.
