R. Crumb (Chicago Conference, Part 2)

The Comics Philosophy and Practice conference at the University of Chicago moves into its second day today. Charles Burns, Daniel Clowes, Chris Ware, and Seth will be on a panel entitled Graphic Novel Forms Today at 2:30 p.m. CST, and I am especially looking forward to the appearance of Robert Crumb at 4:15 p.m. (The movie Crumb was wonderful but I have never seen the gentleman in person.) The schedule for the entire conference can be viewed here.

As was true yesterday, all of the presentations and panel discussions will stream live on the internet! The conference organizers are tweeting that some seats in the auditorium have become available because of NATO-related cancellations, but I will probably watch it from home in my pajamas rather than take the chance of being turned away. Here is the link to the Live Webcast (which did stream very smoothly yesterday).

During the Webcast they display a live twitterfeed side-by-side with the frame showing the main event, and yours truly was right there shooting out the tweets (one of which sufficiently touched a nerve that a fellow tweeter responded to it). Of course I invite you to Follow me over on twitter!
