Southern Exposure: Analyzing the U.S. South through Film

CFP: Critics often cite D. W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation as the
origin of the Hollywood feature film and credit it with helping to
form the Hollywood narrative style. However, the film also marks the
importance of the U.S. southern setting in shaping the American
cinematic imagination. Griffith's film raises the broad issues of
war, tragedy, and romance, but also depicts the more disturbing
issues that continue to be associated with the filmic south: racial
and sexual violence, slavery, vigilante justice, and lynching.

Battleground States: Scholarship in Times of Crisis.

Friday March, 31-Saturday, April 1, 2006

Bowling Green State University

As subjects and scholars, we negotiate contested spaces daily.
We live in a time of global military and political battles,
deterritorialized "wars" against drugs and "terror," and a
heightened contestation over discourses that define
patriotism, "values" and national identity. These broad
battles over political, economic, cultural, and (inter)national
borders are localized in struggles over battleground states and
responses to crisis and tragedy.
