Submissions are invited for an upcoming edited book covering the superhero genre. There is a great need to re-interpret such issues as morality, power, patriotism, and heroism in this new millennium, especially as events such as 9-11, terrorism, torture, corporate profiteering, economic decline, and technological advances impact the U.S. and the world. With the success of Heroes, The Dark Knight, and numerous other superhero movies, the public is looking to understand its world through its superheroes.

Margins of Print: Ephemera, Print Culture, and Lost Histories of the Newspaper (15 Jan 2010); Proposal Deadline: 31 Oct 2009

University of Nottingham

This one-day conference/symposium will address the significance of transitory, elusive texts in Britain, Europe and America, including textual artifacts that have eluded traditional categories of print, or have been dismissed as short-lived, disposable, or valueless. To this end, the conference seeks to establish the value of a wide range of ephemera, from pamphlets and pulps, agony columns or matrimonial advertisements to pictorial matter, cards, cartoons, competitions, display advertising and personal ads. Recent decades have witnessed a shift in scholarly interest toward this formerly overlooked print tradition. New digital resources in particular are bringing into view a wide range of printed materials once hidden from the sight of researchers.
