Participating in a film theory and criticism panel, Dr. Denny will present A Postmodern Family Romance: Lars Von Trier's Anti-Christ. Caruso will present The D is Silent: Language and Law in Django Unchained.

The Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association was established in 1947 to promote critical inquiry, teaching, and research in the fields of languages, literatures and the humanities by holding a convention every fall for the presentation and discussion of research in these and related fields.

David Denny is chair of the Department of Culture & Media Studies at Marylhurst. His interests are critical theory, psychoanalysis, modern literature and philosophy, and film studies. He recently reviewed Zero Dark Thirty on the Marylhurst blog.

John Caruso, 19th-century Americanist and textual scholar, teaches in the Department of English. Read his review of Django Unchained.
