The first step in is penetration. One frame out and two bodies present themselves. And more and more frames reveal more and more bodies, many different bodies in many different bodies in many different frames.

This is Sex...or Something Like It.

If we zoom in on microscopic levels, past the salacious tissues of skin and muscle, chromosomes are abound. 23 pairs with two minimum coupling at conception, determining identity.

This is Sex...or Something Like It.

And who assumed the two in the second sentence were engaged in conjugal conversation, or that the scene was limited to only two? What were the notions that allowed for such assumptions to take hold?

In the 2010 Oscar-winning Best Documentary Feature film The Cove, the film's director Louie Psihoyos describes on-screen the film's approach and activist goals in documenting the slaughter of dolphins in Japan's Taiji: "There was two parts to the mission. The first one was to get the auditory experience. . . . The second mission, what we call the full orchestra," involved installing numerous cameras and microphones underwater and around the cove in which the slaughter took place. "I wanted to have a three-dimensional experience," Psihoyos then explains in voice-over, "with what's going on in that lagoon. I wanted to hear everything that the dolphins were doing, everything that the whalers were saying. The effort wasn't just to show the slaughter.

Rutgers University announces "Science and Method in the Humanities," an interdisciplinary graduate symposium to be held on March 2, 2012, with keynote speakers Peter Dear (Cornell University) and Barbara Herrnstein Smith (Duke University).

The aim of the conference is to explore questions of method and methodology in the sciences and in humanities scholarship that engages the sciences.

"Where is home?" J. Edward Chamberlin asks us, in If this
is your land, where are your stories? Finding Common Ground. "It may be where we hang our hat, or where our heart is … which may be the same place, or maybe not. It may be where we choose to live … or where we belong, whether we like it or not. It may be all of these things or none of them. Whatever and wherever it is, home is always border country, a place that separates and connects us, a place of possibility for both peace and perilous conflict."
