Batman Conference

I’ll be presenting a paper at this Friday’s 75 lat Batmana Konferencja naukowa in Wroclaw. I’m really excited about this because it allows me to use both my nerd and geek brains at the same time for once. For those who are interested, I play off the metaphor of Batman as a Jewish immigrant and use Grant Morrison’s approach to the character (his 75 year history is to accepted as biography) and filter that through the concept of Heimat. The results are pretty striking, and I can’t wait to share it.

More info, including the program, is here.
