Basso at ACLA 2013

I was not planning on updating the blog for a while still, but I recently came across the following in the program for the upcoming meeting of the American Comparative Literature Association at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Canada from 4-7 April 2013.

D22 The Cartography of Fictionality: Mapping Communities that Originate in Fiction
Rhona Trauvitch, University of Massachusetts Amherst
Lillian Massey Building, Room 310
125 Queen’s Park

April 6, 4:40–6:30
Paper 4 of 4
Vincent Basso, University of New Mexico
“Superheroes, Earth-guardians, Space Rangers: Visions of Arthurian Legend in Contemporary Comics”

This sounds like an interesting paper from an Arthurian comics scholar--a grad student at UNM--I don't yet know.
