We Want the Wilderness: Essays Examining Franchise Storytelling
We contend that inventive storytelling within media franchises, such as Star Wars and Marvel, becomes hampered by the commercial needs of business on one side and the fans’ desires for continuity and references—in the forms of callbacks—on the other. We Want the Wilderness: Essays Examining Franchise Storytelling will look for moments when content producers were able to skillfully negotiate (or avoid all together) these dual pressures or, conversely, when these pressures created insurmountable obstacles to storytelling.

In its eleventh year, the Comics Forum is scheduled to take place February 22-23, 2019 at the Michigan State University Main Library, which houses the world’s largest public collection of comic books.

Before social welfare could exist, it needed to be imagined.
The epoch when the full establishment of the concept of the welfare state in the U.K. and other European countries occurred, 1890-1948, indeed coincides with the phenomenon of European Modernism, conceived here not just as an aesthetic, but as a socio-political phenomenon of visionary reform. The dazzling achievements of the 1890s-1940s interms of modernist arts have been minutely charted over the past decades, and the modernist context superbly brought to life. While much has been made of the interactions between Modernism / suffrage or Modernism / war, however, another epoch-making social revolution was underway, whose correlation with the arts remains more tenuous.

Mapping Meaning brings together artists, scientists and scholars to explore new modes of acting in the face of social and ecological crises. Inspired by a photograph from 1918 depicting an all-female survey crew, Mapping Meaning supports the creative work and scholarship of those working at edges and ecotones, who are pushing against traditional disciplinary boundaries. Since 2010 this multi-generational collective has been gathering together around experimental knowledge practices.
