The original writer - reading Alan Moore

Senate House Room 1-04
University of London
Malet Street

Alan Moore is a major contemporary British writer: perhaps the world’s leading writer of comics and graphic novels, credited with revolutionising the medium; the ‘original writer’ for several major science fiction or historical (or, in one case, both) films; the author of a widely-reviewed novel, Jerusalem (2016) and a major (counter-)cultural figure.

The aim of this academic conference is to attend to his writing as writing: to examine what core ideas influence him; his influences and antecedents; to explore questions of form, mode and genre; and to investigate his wider role and context as writer.

Speakers include:

Dr Harriet Earle (Sheffield Hallam University)
Dr Tony Venezia (Birkbeck, University of London)
Professor Robert Eaglestone (Royal Holloway, University of London)
Dr Maggie Gray (Kingston University)
