This panel seeks proposals for presentations on Monster studies in general with a secondary focus on the use of monsters as pedagogical tools in the classroom.

Discourses concerning the concept of (dis)connection are especially prevalent in contemporary society. The relationship between the mind and the body – whether fractured or in flux – feeds into notions of identity, the self, and the 'other'. Contemporary scholarship focusing upon borders, transformations and creations considers the manifold ways in which the body can be (re)organised and (dis)assembled.

"YOU ARE HERE": AN INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE ON PLACE, SPACE, AND EMBODIMENT

March 11-13, 2016 at Creighton University

Overview

At the root of every critical discussion, from politics to religion to student affairs, is a discussion of space, place, and location — where am I? Where can I go? Who else is here? Who cares?

Place holds a particular importance in understanding society and the social relations within it. With questions on the importance of this "ever-shifting social geometry of power and signification" (Massey 1994) that is the 'spatial,' "You Are Here," is a conference dedicated to exploring the questions and implications of space and place.
