As promised/threatened I have finally written up my presentation “Producing and Consuming the Posthuman Body in Superhero Narratives”, a paper I gave at the 2011 British Sociological Asscoiation Annual Conference and in a longer form as a departmental presentation earlier that year. It gives an overview of some of the main concepts I’m working with in my thesis and serves as a pretty thorough introduction to it.
I’ve posted it on NthMind here:
but there is also a version with the illustrations used in the presentation that can be downloaded and printed of here.
Look forward to any comments, thoughts, ideas, etc.
