N. Scott Robinson (San Diego Mesa College) explores fluid transnational representations of American superheroes in comics published in Egypt, India, Indonesia, Japan, Lebanon, Norway, and the United Arab Emirates. James Thompson (Duke University, Comic Book Historians group) looks at how Dracula comics, as imported transnational texts, allow for/demand a reading that can be traced back to Dorfman and Mattelart's How to Read Donald Duck: Imperialist Ideology in the Disney Comic and its examination of dominance and passivity in cultural exchange. Sydney Heifler (The University of Oxford) explains how the 1950s romance comics in the UK shed new light on changing perceptions of female and male identity in British post-war society.
