"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.

Special Session at S014 SAMLA conference (Atlanta)

In today's culture, it's almost impossible to avoid "monsters." Straight from mythology and legend, these fantastic creatures traipse across our television screens and the pages of our books. Over centuries and across cultures, the inhuman have represented numerous cultural fears and, in more recent times, desires. This panel will explore the literal monsters--whether they be mythological, extraterrestrial, or man-made--that populate fiction and film, delving into the cultural, psychological and/or theoretical implications.
