CANADIAN SOCIETY FOR THE STUDY OF COMICS/SOCIÉTÉ CANADIENNE POUR L’ETUDE DE LA BANDE DESSINÉE (CSSC/SCEBD)
Organized by Sylvain Rheault of the University of Regina in October 2010:
“to promote the study of comics in all periods and languages and its relationships with other disciplines and cultural contexts when applicable.” From the constitution of the CSSA/SCEBD.
It held its first conference in May 2011 as part of the “New Narrative” conference at the University of Toronto. Its annual conferences are held in conjunction with the Toronto Cartoon Arts Festival, but it also has other “discussions” and “conversations” etc. throughout the year.
Taken principally from the CSSA/SCEDB website.
