BOOM! #*@&! Splat: Comics and Violence
journals and collections of essays
Editors Brian Duchaney and David Silverman are seeking submissions of individually and co-authored chapters on the topic of animation and subversion for a project that is currently under contract with McFarland publishers. The collection will explore the rise of the animated platform as a means to comment on and criticize social constructs.

Henry James occupies an unusual position in the literary categories of English language fiction. Claimed by both the British and the Americans, as well as by both the 19th century and the 20th, James’ fiction crosses many of the artificially imposed borders our field has created, yet his stories often deal explicitly with the social changes and their consequences that caused the borders to be established in the first place. As we live through yet another period of social upheaval, is James still relevant? What can his short fiction offer a 21st century reader? How might we convey this to our students, many of whom initially find his content dated and his prose challenging?
