Dr. Jason Ray Carney, senior lecturer at Christopher Newport University, Department of English, will speak about “The Theme of Forms and Form of Themes” with the Chesapeake Bay Writers during a luncheon at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 8, at Rocco’s Smokehouse Grill, 207 Bypass Road, Williamsburg.
Carney is an author and recognized expert in popular literature and pulp fiction, said a press release. He serves as the area chair of the “Pulp Studies” section of the Popular Culture Association.
In addition to speaking at academic conferences such as the Modernist Studies Association and the International Association of the Fantastic in the Arts, Carney is a regular guest at various fan conventions, such as the San Diego Comic Con.
At the luncheon, Carney will address the question, “How do literary forms convey themes?” He asks if it’s worth a writer’s time to think about theme and how might a writer “artfully give form to that theme in harmony with their artistic vision?”
