Author of Interrogating the Image: Movies and the World of Film and Television
Frontiers, boundaries, margins, and borders occupy center stage in much recent scholarship. Influenced first by postcolonial theory and now by transnational studies, this paradigm shift has brought about heightened awareness of global interconnectedness and transnational circuits of production, meaning, and migration. For some scholars and public intellectuals, this increasingly globalized world has become marked by a rootless migratory sensibility (Arjun Appadurai) and a flattening of power relations (Thomas Friedman). But as performance artist and cultural critic Guillermo Gómez-Peña has suggested, the experience of crossing borders is not the same for all.

When Worlds Collide: Science, Faith, and the Imagination
This two-day interdisciplinary conference - sponsored by the colleges of Arts and Cultural Studies and Science and Engineering at Oral Roberts University - will examine the relationships between science and science fiction, social science and science fiction, and theology and science fiction in all forms of science and science fiction, including science fiction stories, film, television, radio, graphic novels, and theoretical physics.
Brushing against the redemptive political and theological promise many critics discover in Walter Benjamin, our seminar will investigate the complex figuration of time across his early and later work. "History decays into images, not stories," he proposes in The Arcades Project, a complimentary insight to his earlier assertion in The Origin of German Tragic Drama, that allegory introduces "the decisive category of time" in contrast to the ontological promise that inheres in the symbolic mode. For Benjamin, allegory eschews any eschatological fulfillment wherein "destruction is idealized and . . . nature is fleetingly revealed in the light of redemption." Rather, allegory gathers its iconic significance in the worldly subjection to death.
