Since his earliest appearances in print and on the screen, James Bond has
become a popular icon and has developed nothing short of his own cultural
mythology. His iconic status today may well hide the fact that through
the years, “James Bond” has acquired very different meanings in a variety
of contexts. He has provided a screen onto which the heterogeneous
desires of nationally, culturally and socially diverse readers, viewers
and users have

been projected. In addition, Bond has long become an academic topic as
well, not just in film studies, but also in literary and cultural
studies. As a cultural phenomenon entangled in the histories not only of
Western cultures since World War II, Bond more than merits a conference
as a forum to discuss new approaches and recent revisions.
