Subject: NeMLA 2009 Neil Gaiman Panel
If it is possible to post or circulate the following CFP, I would greatly
Thanks so much,
"Neil Gaiman: Intertextuality and Influences" NeMLA Boston 2/26-3/1/09
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?
