Monday, March 25, 2019

Call for papers for a proposed special session at the Modern Language Association (MLA) Annual Convention on January 9-12, 2020, in Seattle, Washington.

The Netflix show Umbrella Academy, which is based on the comic book series from 2008/2009, gives superhero stories a new twist as it revolves more around identity quests and the acceptance of powers or the lack thereof within a dysfunctional family environment. Trying to define what it means to be a hero, what it means to have powers, what it means to be human, and what it means to be a family, the protagonists need to start over. They need to overcome their own individual struggles by means of their family to be a family once again.
