become a popular icon and has developed nothing short of his own cultural
mythology. His iconic status today may well hide the fact that through
the years, “James Bond” has acquired very different meanings in a variety

desires of nationally, culturally and socially diverse readers, viewers
and users have

Anne Moore

Critics and fans alike defend the status of shows like *The Wire* and *The Sopranos* by calling them
“the new Dickens.” Obviously, the expansive form encourages readers to consider these narratives
as parallel, but what about the serial’s status as a commodity? How is the behavior of Victorian and

popular imagination at these particular historical moments? This panel hopes to address these
questions and more, considering seriality through a transatlantic and transhistorical lens.
Psychoanalytic, cultural studies, and feminist perspectives are encouraged, as are papers that
