conference will explore filmic intersections between the
culture of the U.S. South and the cultures of other
locations around the globe. Among many potential topics,
papers might investigate invocations of the American South

"What appear to be cultural units-human beings, words, meanings, ideas, philosophical systems, social organizations-are maintained in their apparent unity only through an active process of exclusion, opposition, and hierarchization.
