It would be difficult to disentangle fully the various strands of religious reform in early modern England from the educational, aesthetic, and philosophical movements that fall under the broad term 'humanism'.  Nevertheless, the relationship between religious reform and new developments in various humanist projects was not always peaceful. The tensions between humanism and religious reform provoke many questions:  Where were the lines of fracture in the symbiotic relationship between religious reform and the humanisms of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in England? Did religious reform restrict the development of humanism in England, or did it promote a new flourishing of humanism?

Film and media adaptations have frequently projected an alternate cinematic world on screen that re-imagines the past and future. Movies (Blade Runner, The Quiet American), TV shows (Sherlock, Agent Carter), and digital ‘new media’ series—increasingly streamed and ‘binge watched’ on Netflix (House of Cards) and Amazon (The Man in the High Castle)—have been inspired by a variety of fiction novels, short stories, plays, comics, graphic novels, and historical works of nonfiction, memoirs (Bridge of Spies) or documentary (Jazz on a Summer’s Day) cine-essays that mediate and reframe history to portray an alternate worldview which re-imagines the past and anticipates a vision of future events.

The frontier emerged as an important critical concept for an understanding of American history over a hundred years ago, and its status has changed from a celebrated catchphrase to explain away the perplexities of American identity, through an F-word not tolerated in the progressive circles, leading finally to a rehabilitated, more inclusive use. Its variations include terms such as periphery, edge, and borderland, and the very proliferation of the term suggests that its provocative character still inspires critics and artists in the Americas today. The purpose of this conference is to explore the borderlands between critical theory and other ways of interpretative thinking, such as art.
