D.W. Griffith released his epic film Intolerance in 1916 within a contemporary context of social reform, increasing immigration, perceived challenges to religious liberty, and concerns over the corruptive influence of motion pictures. Also (and especially following Birth of a Nation in 1915), Griffith's film may be read as a response to the controversies surrounding the art of the motion picture (as his essays "The Rise and Fall of Free Speech in America" and "A Plea for the Art of the Motion Picture" attest). This panel seeks to reassess Intolerance on the occasion of its centennial and consider its relevance in today's cultural / political / social climate. Topics might include (but are not limited to) the following:

Feminist Spaces invites undergraduate and graduate students to submit academic papers, creative writings, and artistic pieces that adhere to this issue's theme of feminist LGBTQ+ intersectionality. The Supreme Court's recent ruling regarding same-sex marriage equality and the media's growing interest in transgender men and women has re-initiated discussions of feminist intersectionality with regard to the LGBTQ+ movement. The feminist movement has been divided into various waves, each advancing a different majority opinion of LGBTQ inclusion or exclusion.
