The institutional and conceptual conveniences of periodization maintain various productive fictions about the differences between the Victorians and the modernists to narrativize the history of British literature. In particular, the disciplinary formation of modernism as a result of avant-garde experimentation depends on a convention in which the modernists heroically dismantle Victorian literary norms. As much as this narrative is helpful in illuminating the stakes of modernist aesthetics, it can oversimplify the complexities of Victorian-modernist relations.

In the twenty-first century, the Superhero now holds an unparalleled position within pop culture. Having vastly expanded beyond its birth medium of comic books to what is a fierce and pervasive presence in multiple media, this domination is no more apparent than the realms of mainstream cinema, where blockbuster superhero films routinely break box-office records and more than thirty further films are set to be released by 2020.

Since the term was coined by Serge Doubrovsky in 1971, autofiction has become established as a recognisable genre within the French literary pantheon. Over the same period, it has attracted increasing critical and theoretical scrutiny so that it has developed into a dynamic field of scholarly research in France. Indeed, the increase and variety of autofiction scholarship has had the effect of placing the characteristics of the genre itself in question.
