David Denny Presents at PAMLA Conference

Dr. David Denny, chair of the culture and media department, presented a paper at the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association Conference in October 2012.

Dr. Denny describes his paper titled Father, can't you see that I am in pain?: From the Reality of War to the Real of War in Restrepo:

The hyper and even tedious focus on personal narrative and reflection and utter lack of voice-over or broader contextualization in the film Restrepo has the effect of breaking down narrative cohesion, and, therein, revealing the traumatic affect of being at war without a binding or convincing political narrative or purpose.

The presentation was part of a session on documentary film and personal narrative led by Dr. Perrin Kerns, director of writing at Marylhurst.

PAMLA is dedicated to the advancement and diffusion of knowledge of ancient and modern languages and literatures. The 2012 conference was held at Seattle University.
