Revisioning 007

For those interested: I'll be co-presenting a talk with Joyce Goggin during tomorrow's launch of Revisioning 007 (Wallflower Press), an exciting new James Bond-oriented book edited by Christoph Lindner.

We will be presenting our chapter in the book, called "It Just Keeps Getting Bigger: Bond and the Political Economy of Huge". It takes the change from card game Baccarat in the original Casino Royale book and films (the 1954 teleplay and 1967 spoof), to Texas Hold'em Poker in the 2006 film version as a starting point to talk about Bond, gambling and the global economy.

Christoph Lindner and Estella Tincknell will also be presenting their work from the book. For more info on the how and when of the book launch, visit the Spui 25 website. For those interested in more academic writing on 007, make sure to also check out Christoph Lindner's The James Bond Phenomenon: A Critical Reader.
