[UPDATE] Essays on Welsh Mythology in Popular Culture
We are in the final editing stage for a book on Welsh Mythology in Popular Culture (McFarland). We have a gap in our table of contents: Welsh mythology in either comics or graphic novels. Our deadline is approaching, but if you have an appropriate essay that is completed or nearly completed, please email so that we may consider your work. Note: the focus must be on Welsh mythology in particular (not Celtic mythology in general).
Our original call for papers was as follows:
In recent years, interest in Welsh mythology and legendary figures has grown exponentially in popular culture, with appearances in diverse arenas ranging from fantasy fiction to role-playing games, from children's literature to tourist sites and even Celtic-inspired rock music and heavy metal. We are seeking essays that explore the uses and appropriations of these legends into "popular" spaces, hoping to trace the patterns of interpretation and reinscription to offer some insight into what meaning "Welsh mythology" retains in an increasingly postmodern, global society.
