The Humanities and Arts Research Institute at Royal Holloway presents:

The Original Writer: Reading Alan Moore

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.
