With comic books becoming more mainstream, thanks to numerous summer blockbuster films focusing on superheroes—2011 bringing audiences Super, Thor, The Green Hornet, Captain America, X-Men: First Class, and Green Lantern—this session welcomes all papers looking at ongoing portrayals of masculinity in works about superheroes. Submissions may focus the adherence or the subversion of masculine archetypes in superhero comic books, graphic novels, films, plays, and other works in popular culture. Submit 250- to 500-word proposals to Derek McGrath (derek.mcgrath@stonybrook.edu).

Please include with your abstract the following: Name, affiliation, email address, and A/V requirements if any ($10 handling fee with registration).

Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA session; however, panelists may only present one paper (panel or seminar). Convention participants may present a paper at a panel and also present at a creative session or participate in a roundtable. For more information, visit the NEMLA online at http://www.nemla.org/convention/2012/cfp.html.
