Friday, September 30, 2016, is the deadline to submit to the more than 400 calls for papers at the 48th annual meeting of the Northeast Modern Language Association, in Baltimore, Maryland.
My colleagues and I are organizing exciting panels in studies of literature and popular culture, including two sessions I’m putting together on Edgar Allan Poe and representations of disabilities in comics.
And additional sessions below may be of interest in light of recent developments in comics and the superhero genre–Luke Cage premieres tomorrow as well, so why not watch the show, and use that to draft an abstract to a relevant session below?
These are just a few of the exciting sessions (with links for submitting 300-word abstracts) that can lead to dynamic discussions–so please consider submitting abstracts or forwarding these calls of papers to interested peers.
- The Pop Culture Afterlife of Edgar Allan Poe (Panel)
- Superhero Narratives and (Dis)Ability (Roundtable)
- Masks, Mutations, and Metamorphoses: Transformation Sequences in Comics (Panel)
- Marvel vs. DC: Civil War? (Panel)
- Transmedia Storytelling: Questioning Canon in 21st-century Popular Culture Narratives (Panel)
