Apresentação da publicação:

7 January 2015 was a watershed for political cartooning across the world. The terrorist attack on the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo killed 12 and injured 11, and prompted the worldwide Je suis Charlie campaign, focused on issues of freedom of speech and freedom of expression. The attack had deep roots, stretching back to the 2005 Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy, the resurgence of terrorism from 2001, and beyond, to Charlie Hebdo’s long history of challenging cartoon commentary.

While the fallout from that event is still being felt, the twenty-first century has seen a number of other significant conflicts over the nature and significance of cartoons, as well as many in which cartoons have been used as weapons in ideological, ethnic, religious, gendered, class, and cultural contests. Previous eras have also seen their fair share of cartoon-based controversy.

Cartoon Conflicts and Caricature Wars aims to bring analysis of these controversies various together for the first time, and to go further – exploring the significant cartoon conflicts that have animated the art and practice of cartooning over the centuries.

The editors invite proposals for chapters concentrated on significant cartoon conflicts, or caricature wars, from any and all global contexts, and time periods. Joint authorship is encouraged, as this volume is intended to showcase the collaborative and cross-disciplinary scholarship that is so characteristic of cartoon studies. Contributions may take historical, literary, art-historical, legal, linguistic, media studies, or other approaches.
