Work-in-Progress Talk, friday Feb 26, 2.30pm in HMN 509 (formerly ARTS 509)

Sean Moreland, "Caitlin R. Kiernan, Sadomodernism and Queer Time.”

About his presentation, Sean writes:  “I will discuss the transformative intersection between queerness and the weird that occurs in the fictions of contemporary American writer Caitlin R. Kiernan, focusing especially on her explorations of the relationship between temporality and causality, along with narrative and subjectivity. While my emphasis will fall mainly on her award-winning 2012 novel The Drowning Girl, I shall not only link this work to her earlier novels, but also to her work in comics, including the series The Dreaming (a spin-off from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman which she scripted briefly in the late 1990s), and her ongoing series Alabaster.”
