August 26, 2014: Dr. Christine Schreyer's Experience Working on "Man of Steel"Print

Kryptonian In a recent interview with The Wenner-Gren Blog, Dr. Christine Schreyer, the linguistic anthropologist who helped develop the Kryptonian language used in the movie "Man of Steel", talks about the whole experience of being on a movie set, and what she learned from working in Hollywood. Here's a few excerpts from the interview...

    What was the input and feedback like from the non-anthropologists in the production?

    I was given much leeway to decide how I wanted the language to be developed and the person who gave me the most feedback was Kristen, the graphic designer, as we were the ones who ended up knowing the most about how the language worked since we were using it frequently. However, Alex McDowell, Production Designer, and Helen Jarvis, Art Director, were also extremely supportive of the work that Kristen and I were doing, which was nice since it led to more opportunities for the language to be used throughout the film's production.

    What did you take from the experience? Did this project influence the way you think about your scholarly work, or your work with "real" languages?

    Since my work on this project, I've been fascinated with the ideas of world building and the on-line worlds that people build and participate in. This has led me to re-look at my research with Na'vi speakers through the lens of digital ethnography. I've also had fans of Superman contact me requesting more information about how to learn the language I developed. As of now, Warner Bros., the official owners of this work, have not yet developed a learning guide for Kryptonian. Despite this, people are interested in learning the language, making me wonder, what can we do to make those interested in learning minority languages "fans" of their languages again? What can "fandoms" teach us about the enthusiasm required to help reverse language shift?

August 26, 2014: Lois Lane Young Adult Novel Coming in JanuaryPrint

Lois Lane Fallout Author Gwenda Bond has announced that she's written a Lois Lane Young Adult novel that will be released in January. Titled "Fallout", the book will focus on a young Lois who, as a high school student, has just moved to Metropolis.

Fallout (Lois Lane)
by Gwenda Bond (Author)
Lois Lane is starting a new life in Metropolis. An Army brat, Lois has lived all over - and seen all kinds of things. (Some of them defy explanation, like the near-disaster she witnessed in Kansas in the middle of one night.) But now her family is putting down roots in the big city, and Lois is determined to fit in. Stay quiet. Fly straight. As soon as she steps into her new high school, though, she can see it won't be that easy. A group known as the Warheads is making life miserable for another girl at school. They're messing with her mind, somehow, via the high-tech immersive videogame they all play. Not cool. Armed with her wit and her new snazzy job as a reporter, Lois has her sights set on solving this mystery. But sometimes it's all a bit much. Thank goodness for her maybe-more-than-a friend, a guy she knows only by his screenname, SmallvilleGuy...
Hardcover: 304 pages
Publisher: Switch Press
(January 1, 2015)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1630790052

Gwenda Bond is the author of the young adult novels Girl on a Wire, Blackwood, and The Woken Gods. She has also written for Publishers Weekly and the Los Angeles Times, among other publications, and just might have been inspired to get a journalism degree by her childhood love of Lois Lane. She has an MFA in Writing from the Vermont College of Fine Arts, and lives in a hundred-year-old house in Lexington, Kentucky, with her husband, author Christopher Rowe, and their menagerie. Visit her online at gwendabond.com or @gwenda on Twitter.

Pre-order the book from our Online Store for its January release.

"Chaos" - Part 12

Writer: Bryan Q. Miller
Artists: Agustin Padilla
Colorist: Carrie Strachan

Reviewed by: Matt Schorr

    On first reading, I didn't like this story. Every other story arc's conclusion has had... well, a conclusion. But it grew on me the second time through.

    I still have a beef with Superman's survival of Bleed Space last issue. We're again reminded in this issue that it wasn't easy, but it's still the sort of "gotcha" moment that just annoys me. It's what Dennis O'Neill would complain about. "Nope! Bleed can't kill me! I'm Superman. No nyaah!"

    But that's in the past, now. And this issue is about the future, about what comes next.

    Typically, the final chapter in a Smallville story arc leaves us with an ending of sorts. Sure, there are teases and hints of what's to come, but the closing chapter is still the closing chapter. Not so, here. This is very open-ended.

    And that's a not a bad thing.
