How does memory function as form and/or as narrative in Hitchcock's films (addressing trauma, cure, desire, film ontology welcome but not limited to). Serving as sorts of human thumb drives, both Mr. Memory in Thirty-Nine Steps and Van Meer in Foreign Correspondent serve as memory correlatives in Hitchcock films, a crucial aspect of psychoanalytic cure of trauma.

"Distance and Proximity"
The dynamics of relation are central to interdisciplinary study in the Arts and Humanities. The relational dyad of distance and proximity provides us with a rich set of spatial, affective, theoretical, and historical relations in which we can explore the dynamics that run throughout the fabric of our own cultural inquiry. Moreover, navigating the distances between disciplines enables the preservation and affirmation of the significance of "difference", cultural, sexual, artistic, conceptual and/or otherwise.

"Foundation" is the journal of the British SF Foundation formed in 1972. It is published three times a year, and is currently looking for articles and reviews for 2015. The journal publishes on any aspect of sf with particular emphases upon interdisciplinary, international and cultural perspectives. We are interested in both the histories of sf and in current trends, including the borderlines between genres, media and what passes for the 'mainstream'. Articles should be up to 6000 words in length, double-spaced and written in accordance with the style sheet available on the SF Foundation website.
This panel investigates the multiethnic dimension of 20th and 21st century maximalist works of art, cinema and literature. Do recent works by novelists such as Leslie Silko, Karen Yamashita, Anna Deveare Smith, Sergio de la Pava, Junot Diaz et al evince continuities with what Lawrence Buell has recently described (in The Dream of the Great American Novel) as "the minoritarian turn in protagonist-centric narrative from the mid-twentieth century onward," or are such works better understood as harbingers of a new relationship between ethnic-American writers / writing and forms of 'total fiction'?
The Gothic is a genre that emerged during the turmoil leading up to and caused by the French Revolution. Its symbolic use of shattered landscapes, natural and human made, challenging the view of the individual and society as ordered and rational, continues to evolve to reflect the anxieties of the eras and changing cultures of the nineteenth-, twentieth-, and twenty-first centuries. Ruined castles and mansions, blasted heaths, and ominous mountains and cliffs give way to uncharted lands for colonization, mean streets and urban jungles, sinister laboratories, gruesome battlefields, the labyrinth of political and economic conspiracies, and the dark unknowns of the human mind and body themselves.
