I'd like to invite you to this landmark panel at this week's College Art Association. This is, to my knowledge, the first time illustration as a discipline has been discussed among art historians and others as it relates to how art history does and does not serve the history of illustration. The event is free.

Each paper is 12 minutes. The short time was chosen in order to focus on discussion afterwards. I believe we can stay late in the room.
