Hi, um. Bit of an odd question but I am really trying to write a term paper about a trope in literature-- character has a "real world", plot device happens, character travels through a fantasy world with distinct physical or situational characteristics in common with their "real world"-- and am planning to use Mirrormask as one of my primary texts for analysis. However I'm having the weirdest, hardest time finding scholarly articles on this phenomenon.
Does anyone know of any such articles? Or suggestions on where to find them? Or essays on a similar subject for any/all of Gaiman's works?
If not, the FAQs do say that one can contact Cat Mihos to ask questions for dissertations. Would this be the sort of thing I could ask through that manner? This paper is related to my senior thesis work...
Thanks very much!

I'm sure it's a moot point by now (the term being over and all), but there are many great stories that use this trope. If you're really interested look at Irving's "Rip Van Winkle" and Baum's The Wizard of Oz.
