[DWJ] Dwj Digest, Vol 66, Issue 4

Hi everyone,

I've been reading this list with great appreciation for about a year but
especially in the past week. I've enjoyed reading everyone's tributes; they
truly are a testament to how powerful her work is.

I want to share a paper I wrote and presented last year about Howl's Moving
Castle. It was the first time I'd tried to engage with her work in an
academic way, and I kept uncovering more and more layers to the story -- so
many more than I'd ever noticed in the ten years I'd been reading the story.
Some members of this list show up as sources, of course!

http://deepthiw.com/2011/uncategorized/playfulness-to-apocalypse-postmodernity-in-the-book-and-film-of-howl%E2%80%99s-moving-castle

Thanks to everyone for sharing your thoughts and memories in this
community.
Deepthi
