Words of the day

Gender identity. Popular culture. Noir. Gothic. Veronica. Buffy. Female empowerment.

Eek - just had my meeting with my Honours supervisor. She's very excited about my thesis - not sure whether I am anymore ;-)! Looks like I have a lot of research in front of me. The intro alone will run to several pages as I have to look at the literary history of the genres I'm dealing with, so I'll have to look at the advent of hard boiled detectives and noir, and it's evolution from books to film to television in the case of Veronica Mars. Buffy is another matter all together - it's such a mix of genres, not sure where to start. What do you think Flisters?
