Protest Freedom and Transformation in Space: Firefly as Road Narrative

ImageMy essay, “Protest Freedom and Transformation in Space: Firefly as Road Narrative” is a student essay in a new textbook, The Rhetorical Power of Popular Culture: Considering Mediated Texts by Deanna Sellnow.  My paper ended up in the book because a professor of mine, Dr. Tom Endres, wrote a chapter in the book and he chose my essay as the student example. The paper was written for a graduate course in communications. 

Versions of this paper were also presented at two academic conferences. It was presented at the 2012 Society for the Interdisciplinary Study of Social Imagery Conference in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The theme of that conference was The Image of the Road.   Another incarnation of the paper was presented at The 2012 Slayage Conference on the Whedonverses in Vancouver, Canada. That conference is dedicated to the works of Joss Whedon.
