Death, Dying, and Beyond Unit and Religion, Film, and Visual Culture Unit

Call for Papers: 

The Death, Dying, and Beyond Unit and the Religion, Film, and Visual Culture Unit are looking to mount a co-sponsored panel on "Superheroes and Mortality." Specifically, the emphasis for this session would be on the superhero genre (in comic books, film, television, or affiliated media) and issues of mortality, mourning, funeral rites, the hereafter, resurrection, reincarnation, thanatology, and eschatology. Submitters are encouraged to take the theme literally (i.e., we are not asking for figurative "superheroes" nor metaphorical "death"). Topics reaching beyond the English-speaking, U.S. market are especially welcome.

Proposals are anonymous to chairs and steering committee members until after final acceptance/rejection
