      If it is possible to post or circulate the following CFP, I would greatly
      appreciate it.

      Thanks so much,

      Grace Wetzel

      "Neil Gaiman: Intertextuality and Influences" NeMLA Boston 2/26-3/1/09
      Deadline: 9/15/08

      40th Annual Northeast MLA Conference. Boston, MA.
      Feb. 26-Mar. 1, 2009.

      Fantasy fiction writer and graphic novelist Neil Gaiman blurs the border of
      reality through imaginative tales that transport us to strange and alluring
      lands. Yet embedded in the extraordinary are hints of the familiar. In what
      ways does Gaiman modernize old myths and narratives and to what end? How
      does internet culture influence his work? What other cultural texts,
      traditions, and conventions � both new and old � inform Gaiman's short
      stories, novels, comics, graphic novels, and films? What does this generic
      heterogeneity signify and how can � and
      should � we classify these texts?
