Substantial New Content… Elsewhere

In the nick of time, I’ve posted my December monthly-discussion-post to the Society of the Friends of the Text blog. It’s about reception as an antidisciplinary force, and has lots of nice crunchy quotes from John Mowitt’s amazing book Text: The Genealogy of an Antidisciplinary Object, as well as one from Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick. Roland Barthes is notable by his absence.

Here’s the post. Please read, comment, and think about joining the Society if you haven’t already.

I’ve also finally started putting up papers from the ‘Desiring the Text’ conference which spawned the Society: you can read mine (about whether Dante’s Divine Comedy is a Mary-Sue, and what it would mean for reading if it was), and Balaka Basu’s (about metafiction, belief and embodied reading in a dizzying range of texts from Peter Pan to Merlin and Supernatural) here.

Happy New Year!

    I have got to get you my paper. It’s like 20 minutes of work I need to do. I’ll try to do it this week.
