Genres 2010 - Web Paper 3

This is the third set of webpapers to emerge from Literary Kinds: Thinking Through Genres, a course about category-making and category-breaking offered at Bryn Mawr College in Spring 2010. Three months into the semester, students are exploring here the questions they have been mulling over since they left Alice in Wonderland: there are essays here about the genre of the graphic narrative, of film, of framed stories, of sequels...

Take a look around, and feel warmly welcome to respond in the comment area available at the end of each paper. What strikes, intrigues, puzzles you...what, among your reactions, might be of interest or use to the writer, or others in the class, or others who--exploring the internet--might be in search of thoughtful conversation about how we are making sense of the way literature, and literary theory, portrays the world?
