William Buehler Seabrook (1884-1945) was an adventurer and best-selling
Lost Generation writer whose influence on U.S. and global popular culture
has been massive but critically neglected. Seabrook was best known for
his sensational anthropological adventures, The Magic Island (1929), a
chronicle of his stay in U.S. occupied-Haiti and participation in voudun;
and Jungle Ways (1930), a record of his immersion among several tribal
peoples in the Côte d’Ivoire, Liberia, and Mali, in his quest to commit
cannibalism in a racially authentic setting. The Magic Island inspired
the first wave of zombie films of the 1930s, most notably White Zombie

Love and Conquest
Graduate Conference
Saint Louis University, Madrid, Spain
May 29-30, 2008

>From the dominance of the gods to the exploration of the world, from
memories of desire to representations of obsession, passion has led to
great advances in mapping the body and penetrating the continents. At
the 6th-annual Saint Louis University Madrid graduate conference, we
invite our peers to do some scouting of their own into the territories
of "Love and Conquest." What boundaries are laid and by whom? What
motivations emerge as truly culpable in the lust for power and property?
In what forms do acts of resistance manifest?
