Moviegoers detoured to the drive-in theaters in post-war America leading to the breakdown of many city-center theaters.

This area will examine multiple perspectives on film exhibition from early itinerant showmen to the re-imagining of the business in the 21st century examining all the theatrical elements that affect[ed] movie going from management styles to technologies; from Saturday morning kiddie shows to midnight premieres, from concessions stands to dinner and drinks at the movies.

This panel seeks papers that treat any aspect of social difference as presented in the literatures of the Middle Ages. Papers might construe this social difference as confessional, geographic, economic, political, ethnic, or bodily. How do these categories of difference shape social formation? How do they delimit the boundaries of moral relevance and/or social inclusion? What counts as a neighbor? What counts as a monster? What obligations or affinities do these designations entail? How does one know how to treat a stranger? Paper proposals that deal with the troubling of categories of social difference are especially welcome.
