At first glance, I’m not particularly impressed with Dr. Matthhews’ assersions – seems like she’s finding what she set out looking for. If you take a look at the summary of another conference paper/panel, she seems to have an axe to grind. For example, “My paper examines this influence by showing how Gabaldon uses her position as the author to offer the “correct” interpretation to readers’ questions, all while creating an online persona that is friendly to those who agree with her, but caustic to those who do not.” Perhaps her papers would impress me more if they were available to read in their entirety (including footnotes & backing data), as well as any peer reviews, not just a couple of paragraphs of summary.
Also, I’m highly curious if Dr. Matthews will be at all involved in DG’s appearance at an upcoming book festival hosted by her academic instution.
