Connections and Intersections: Interdisciplinarity Within and Among Disciplines
Our global world presents us with complex issues that can be investigated only from multiple perspectives, resulting in the adoption of interdisciplinary approaches in many traditional academic areas and the formation of many new interdisciplinary fields. Arguably, it is hard to accomplish substantial research in any discipline without addressing "interdisciplinarity" and using some interdisciplinary methods.

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.
The deadline for proposals has been extended to April 14, 2014 for the SCPLC Student Conference scheduled for October 10, 2014 at SC State University. If you teach at a college or university within driving distance of our campus, we invite you to create a student panel on any of the topics listed in our original CFP.
"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.
