Popular Culture Association / American Culture Association

Overview: The last half-dozen years have seen an explosion in U.S. publications addressing the intersection of religion and comics, but little has been said on the body of work taken as a whole. Outside of individual reviews, rarely are these works discussed in terms of their applications, their intertextuality, their audiences, their shortcomings, or the new questions they raise. This panel is to act as a forum addressing either portions of these works, entire books, their shared space, or the next steps to which they may all lead. In addition to the print publications recommended below, this panel also invites reflections on some of the websites and blogs conducting similar work, also listed:

Journal of the Northern Renaissance

The semantic slipperiness of 'will' fascinated the Renaissance: in all manner of texts of the period we find 'Will too boote, and Will in over-plus'. The structural conceit of the opening lines of John Donne's poem, 'The Will', exemplifies a key thematic construct to be found in much early modern literature and a prevalent intellectual thread in the culture from which this literature emerges: 'Before I sigh my last gasp, let me breath / Great Love, some legacies'.
