* This Saturday, I’m giving a paper on Superboy-Prime and the fan-as-villain at the Reception Studies Society Conference at Marquette. I’m talking at 10:15 AM.
* Next Tuesday we’re hosting the English department’s second Pop Culture Lunch of the semester at 12:30 PM at the Tory Hill Cafe at the Marquette University Law School (we’ve taken to meeting in the adjoining atrium). We’ll be talking all about Breaking Bad.
* Then next Saturday I’ll be at the annual meeting of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts at the University of Notre Dame, giving a paper on “Capital as Artificial Intelligence” and appearing on a roundtable about metaphors of climate change.
