Haniyeh Barahouie (University of Virginia) examines how Posy Simmonds' 1999 graphic novel Gemma Bovery destabilizes/redefines the identity of Flaubert's heroine by situating Emma Bovary as still present in modern life. Katelyn McGirr (Carleton University) uses a graphic adaptation of the nineteenth-century diary of British woman Fanny Duberly as a case study to explore historical representation of Victorian gender and class relations. Stephen Connor (Nipissing University) reveal the ways in which Punisher comics reinforce and challenge evolving perceptions about the war in Vietnam and its aftermath.
