Spaces may be real or imagined, literal or metaphorical, psychological or material. Literal places may include sites of trauma, genocide, or biological experimentation; dystopias; colonized regions; mythical lands; etc. Psychological spaces may include memory, neurosis, philosophy, etc. Monstrosity may be perceived as depravity; social or sexual taboos; hegemonic power in the form of racism, classism, sexism; etc. Papers may challenge, call to light, or reinforce perceptions of monstrosity.
Fields of study may include, but are not limited to:
Composition and rhetoric
Film theory and technique

This conference theme is inspired by the work of our keynote speaker, Hilary Chute, Neubauer Family Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago and Faculty Fellow at the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. Author of Graphic Women: Life Narrative and Contemporary Comics and associate editor of Art Spiegelman's MetaMaus, Chute is a critical authority on graphic narrative. She identifies her specific interest "in the relationships between word and image, fiction and nonfiction that we see in contemporary comic."
Dr. Chute will deliver her keynote address on the evening of March 22 following a dinner reception. Reception tickets may be purchased at time of registration.
