Edited Volume Under Contract with Routledge

We’re happy to announce that our  collection of essays Empirical Approaches to Comics Research: Digital, Multimodal and Cognitive Methods is now under contract with Routledge and will be published in the series “Advances in Comics Studies” in late 2017. Alexander Dunst, Jochen Laubrock, and Janina Wildfeuer will edit the volume, which will feature contributions by well-known researchers in computer and cognitive science,  linguistics, media and literary studies, including John Bateman, Bart Beaty, Neil Cohn, Christophe Rigaud, Tim Smith and Ben Tatler. The collection will be the first of its kind, establishing the practical and theoretical motivations for the quantitative study of comics, manga, and graphic novels and aim to become a reference for anyone interested in the scientific study of art and literature.
