Throughout his career, Moore has displayed a willingness to adapt and appropriate the plots, characters, settings, and themes from traditional narratives and the works of other authors into his own writing.

  • Graphic Engagement: The Politics of Comics and Animation

    • Abstract: The Purdue Comparative Literature Program presents the 2010 Conference, Graphic Engagement: The Politics of Comics and AnimationPurdue University – West Lafayette, IN
      September 2-4, 2010Comics and film animation are potent media that can have an effect far different from that of more traditional forms of literature. They are composite texts whose mixtures of image, word, and sound offer a more immediate exchange between author(s) and audience, where the visuals directly confront us and demand a reader response in ways that prose narrative does not. The resulting effects can have profound ideological consequences. Either in the form of a comics memoir, a Disney adaptation, a superhero saga, or a single-panel cartoon, graphic narratives shape the way we frame ourselves in terms of gender, race, religion, class, and nationhood.

  • Call for Papers: 'Surrealism, Science Fiction, and Comic Books'

    • Abstract: In his 1976 essay 'Science Fiction and Allied Literature,' David Ketterer wrote 'it is rather surprising that the considerable affinity which exists between Surrealism and SF has not attracted more attention.' This observation was repeated in 1997 by Roger Bozzetto and Arthur B. Evans, who lamented that the relations between Surrealism and science fiction 'continue to be largely unexplored in SF scholarship,' and that 'there currently exists no in-depth study of SF and Surrealism.' The points of contact and areas of overlap, along with the influences, differences, and antagonisms that lie between Surrealism, science fiction, and the related literature of the comic book will be explored in this conference to be held 22 January 2011 at The Courtauld Institute of Art, London.See more ...

  • Graven Images: Religion in Comic Books and Graphic Novels, April 11 - 13,
           2008

    • Abstract: Boston University is hosting a conference addressing the theme of religion in comics. From the website:From the performance of religion in comics, to religious or mythic traditions among the elements of various works, to the use of comics by religious practitioners themselves, the relationship between comics and religion is dynamic and evolving. Given the increasing seriousness with which the public has come to view comics as an art form and Americans' fraught but passionate relationship with religion, "Graven Images" will provide an opportunity for discussion of cutting- edge artistic and social issues by exploring the roles of religion in comic books and graphic novels. This event is free and open to the public.The event is being organized by Christine Hoff Kraemer and A. David Lewis.

  • Queer Transitions in Contemporary Spanish Culture

    • Abstract: Queer Transitions coverThe SUNY Press has recently published Gema Pérez-Sánchez's Queer Transitions in Contemporary Spanish Culture as part of their series in Latin American and Iberian Thought and Culture. From the back of the book:Gema Pérez-Sánchez argues that the process of political and cultural transition from dictatorship to democracy in Spain can be read allegorically as a shift from a dictatorship that followed a self-loathing "homosexual" model to a democracy that identified as a pluralized "queer" body. Focusing on the urban cultural phenomenon of la movida, she offers a sustained analysis of high queer culture, as represented by novels, along with an examination of low queer culture, as represented by comic books and films. Pérez-Sánchez shows that urban queer culture played a defining role in the cultural and political processes that helped to move Spain from a premodern, fascist military dictatorship to a late-capitalist, parliamentary democracy.If you are interested in reviewing this book for ImageTexT, please contact our Book Review Editor, Tof Eklund.
       
  • Reading Network Fiction

    • Abstract: Reading Network FictionThe University of Alabama Press has recently published Reading Network Fiction by David Ciccoricco. From the website:With the recession of hypertext theory's utopianism and the varied claims of liberation and democratization it fed, it is now possible to ask, with more perspective and precision, not what digital media will mean for narrative literature, literary study, and reading itself, but what it has already meant. This is the task set by Reading Network Fiction, which resists the rush of techno-culture and indulges in that age-old pleasure of making time for a good story – except that the stories it examines are all written, paradoxically, on and for the computer screen. Learn more at the website created for the book.If you are interested in reviewing this book for ImageTexT, please contact our Book Review Editor, Tof Eklund.

  • Out of the Gutter: Collection on comics and graphic novels

    • Abstract: Over the course of the past two years, there has been a marked increase of academic interest in comic books and graphic novels, from a cultural theory perspective as well as from the fields of media studies and literature. However, there have been surprisingly few book-length studies on this topic published from any of these disciplinary perspectives. Hence, while Scott McCloud’s groundbreaking book Understanding Comics raised public and academic interest in this under-theorized and challenging medium, and helped to theorize the medium-specific qualities of sequential pictorial narratives, his book suspends the question of how specific disciplinary perspectives might be engaged.

  • SCAN - Reading Between the Panels (Special Issue)

    • Abstract: 'Reading between the Panels', a special issue of SCAN: Journal of Media Arts Culture.Edited by:
      Can Yalcinkaya : canyalcinkaya@yahoo.com
      Dr Steve Collins : scollins@scmp.mq.edu.auComic books have been often treated deridingly as a hybrid of art and literature, but ultimately a product of low culture. Works by artists, writers and scholars including Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, Art Spiegelman, Frank Miller, Scott McCloud, Will Brooker and Danny Fingeroth have forced a reappraisal of the space occupied by comic books. Over the last two decades comic book stories have diverged from hero-centric mythologies to more broadly explore areas such as the full gamut of the human psyche, sexuality, and politics. Beyond the stories themselves, the comic industry and economy has expanded to encompass underground, adult and alternative productions as well lucrative movie adaptations. This issue of Scan Journal invites submission on areas dealing with comic books and graphic novels that include, but are not restricted to:See more ...

  • Paraliterary Narratives: Reassessing the 'Graphic Novel' (Conference)

    • Abstract: 6-7 June 2008,
      The School of Arts, University of Northampton, UK,
      Keynote speakers: Professor Julian Wolfreys. The term 'graphic novel' is an intensely contested term that covers the pop zeitgeist of American superhero comics to high conceptual art. Just how to define the genre is only one a series of critical conundrums that Samuel R. Delany's term 'paraliterary' scarcely addresses, but offers a starting point for reconsideration. Alongside the complexity of definition comes the problem of critical vocabulary and approaches. That language and methodologies used to discuss prose, film, and non-narrative visual art sometimes fit, but often don't, is part of that issue. Just how are we to discuss an art form that has in the last 25 years gathered an increasingly serious readership and seen the emergence of many major new artists and writers, but struggles with critical credibility' It is, undoubtedly, a genre greater that the sum of its aesthetic parts incorporating drawing, narrative fiction and, perhaps, cinema, into an integrated, fully realised, artistic form that matches any other in terms of its expressive possibilities.See more ...

  • Superheroes and Trauma (Collection)

    • Abstract: Editors:
      Vanessa Raney, Southern Connecticut State University
      Peter F. Coogan, Fontbonne UniversityOne can locate scholarship on the ideological and mythic status of superheroes in which the social and fantastic collide to offer interesting but primarily theoretical constructions on the privileging of norms in society. Our book collection hopes to contribute to this burgeoning field by examining more closely the role of trauma in the superhero saga, especially the ways that it gets encoded, transcribed, and received. Thus, we seek submissions focused on Marvel and DC style superheroes (that is, protagonists of the superhero genre only, not all super heroes: ordinary heroes who are super or superior like the way firefighters and policeman were depicted after 9/11) and trauma.See more ...
