Presentation: Jarret Keene
Jarret Keene (English) presented at the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association conference in Honolulu, Hawaii. His paper, "Keep Your Swords Above the Mire!: A Reconsideration of the 1975 DC Comics series Beowulf: Dragon Slayer," argues that this obscure sword-and-sorcery comic book, written by then-college professor Michael Uslan (today the producer of the Batman films), extends and enriches the saga of the protagonist of the Old English poem Beowulf by situating the character within a larger universe of myth, literature, religion, and pop-archeology.
