"With great power, comes great irresponsibility…" – Deadpool
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.

Call for papers
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.

Michel Foucault: Discourse Theory and the Archive
(Göttingen University, 16 July 2016)
This year marks not only Michel Foucault's 90th birthday, but also the 50th anniversary of the publication of his seminal book Let Mots et les Choses, which made Foucault a prominent intellectual figure throughout Europe. We would like to commemorate this double anniversary with a one-day symposium organised by the Department of British Literature and Culture at Göttingen University in cooperation with the Göttingen Center for Genderstudies and the Center for Theory of Culture and Society.
The Dandelion editors seek submissions on the theme of NOSTALGIA for their forthcoming issue.
Nostalgia is a ubiquitous presence in contemporary culture. Images and fantasies of the past permeate cultural and political discourses: from the mediated recycling of retro culture and popular history, to nostalgia as a method of political renewal (for example, Donald Trump's campaign slogan 'Make America Great Again!' and Ken Loach's The Spirit of '45).

Call for submissions to an edited collection requested by publisher
Since his seminal writing on The Sandman (1989-present) and long since before and after on works such as Batman, Miracleman, The Books of Magic, The Endless, Stardust, The Graveyard Book, etc. from adult graphic novels (Neverwhere) to voluminous amounts of children's graphic novels and illustrated texts (Coraline, Chu's Day, Fortunately, the Milk, Hansel and Gretel etc.), Neil Gaiman has established himself as one of the most prominent, if not prolific, writers in the medium of sequential art in the late twentieth and twenty-first century.
