Wendy Sterba to Present Paper in Marburg, Germany, on June 7

German Professor Wendy Sterba will present a paper at a conference in Marburg, Germany, titled "The Corporate and the Corporeal: Min(d)ing the Body - Conscience and Consumption in Early 21st Century Hollywood Dystopia.  The theme of the conference is Imaging the End of the World.  This conference is sponsored by Philipps University, Marburg, und Central Connecticut State University.

Wendy's paper looks at films such as Batman Begins, Land of the Dead, Surrogates and Joss Whedon's films and television shows to examine the effects of new technology on the gendered body in terms of conscience and how mind as neural circuit becomes an element driving revolutionary actions to corporate co-option of the body.

Congratulations, Wendy!
