"Neo-Dickens for a New Audience: Reading, Watching, and Teaching Dickens in the 21st Century" (Dickens Society Sponsored Panel)
Chair: Mary Ann Tobin, PhD, The Pennsylvania State University
The term “transnational” is frequently used in academic discourse but rarely investigated at length. Operating at a liminal space between national and global, transnational scholarship investigates the connections tying works of far-flung regions using a comparative framework. Yet as scholars of comparative literature, how do we theorize this framework? Does the transnational juxtapose, rather than compare? Does it strive to understand the influence of one national media on another, or does it go beyond influence?
28TH ANNUAL BRITISH COMMONWEALTH AND POSTCOLONIAL STUDIES CONFERENCE
FEBRUARY 15-16, 2019
DESOTO SAVANNAH, SAVANNAH GA
CALL FOR PAPERS
The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992, is the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States. It encompasses colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.
Critical scholarship of comics, cartoons, and graphic narratives has been a burgeoning field in research and debate for at least the last twenty-five years. Amid such scholarly richness, LGBTQ comics criticism and scholarly attention to LGBTQ comics and cartoons is at least keeping pace with a field within which it is still negotiating its position.
