Love and Conquest
Graduate Conference

May 29-30, 2008

the 6th-annual Saint Louis University Madrid graduate conference, we
invite our peers to do some scouting of their own into the territories
of "Love and Conquest." What boundaries are laid and by whom? What
motivations emerge as truly culpable in the lust for power and property?
In what forms do acts of resistance manifest?
