Dissipating the Original. Narrative Dissemination and Transmediality in Neil Gaiman’s Short Works of Fiction and Nonfiction
My research project seeks to examine the ways in which the contemporary speculative fiction writer Neil Gaiman (1960-) constantly reconfigures his own oeuvre (including novels, short stories, comics, graphic novels, illustrated books, TV series, poems, lyrics, blog articles, essays and speeches) by means of disseminative and transmedial strategies. It focuses more particularly on the interactions between Gaiman's works of fiction and nonfiction, on the metafictional aspects of these productions and on their impact on Gaiman’s stance. My fields of interest include popular culture, speculative fiction, storytelling, short stories, comics and children's literature.
